1990

SAE, was founded in 1990 by Brien Sirola a Professional Engineer. SAE’s aims to provide innovative services that solve the most challenging electrical grounding issues, primarily in the United States and Canada.

1992

Even in SAE’s earliest years, SAE’s grounding designs incorporated advanced horizontal and vertical copper conductor, electrode systems, and a conductive backfill.

1995

In 1995, SAE developed a proprietary conductive carbonaceous concrete backfill, Conducrete®, which amplifies the performance, extends the useful life, and protects systems from theft.

2002

SAE’s innovation process continued in 2002, leading to the creation of the revolutionary EnvirAnode® Cathodic Protection (CP) Systems, which are the only environmentally friendly, long life CP systems available in the world.

2008

In 2008, a state of the art manufacturing facility was commissioned, which now enables SAE to manufacture its own products.

2017

Today, SAE is expanding its core cathodic protection and grounding business and growing distribution internationally. In addition, SAE has launched a variety of new products and services such as ConduDISC (an encased utility pole plate), CONDUFLOW (a liquid conductive backfill CP), and grounding applications.
