Our Story

SAE’s innovative premium products and services solve the most challenging grounding, AC mitigation and cathodic protection issues. Founded in 1990, SAE initially focused on designing and installing electrical grounding systems predominantly in the telecommunication and industrial sectors.

SAE’s early grounding designs incorporated extensive horizontal and vertical copper conductor, electrode systems and a conductive backfill. Recognizing the need to continuously improve, in 1995 SAE developed a proprietary conductive carbonaceous concrete backfill. Conducrete® has become an integral component of not only SAE’s grounding designs, but more recently SAE AC mitigation and cathodic protection systems as it improves the performance, extends the useful life and protects the systems from theft.

Based on experience gained by solving complex grounding problems for clients such as NASA, along with years of research and development, SAE has developed a complete line of conductive backfils that dramatically enhance the performance, reliability and longevity of grounding and cathodic protection systems.  In 2002, SAE began the innovation process that lead to the development of its revolutionary EnvirAnode® cathodic protection system. The EnvirAnode® system, the only environmentally friendly CP system available, has been successfully installed and tested by major customers such as Enbridge, Southwest Gas, Kinder Morgan, Williams, Energy Transfer Partners, Questar/Dominion, DOW, CenterPoint, Praxair, and BHP.

In 2008, SAE commissioned its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility which  enabled SAE to manufacture its own products and quickly respond to customer requirements. A decade later, SAE’s corporate headquarters and main manufacturing facility were merged to better meet increasing product demands.

In addition to further developing its core business, SAE is currently focused on establishing international distribution for its products and services such as ConduDisc®, ConduFlow®, ConduForm™Canister Anode and much more.

Our History

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.
Even in SAE’s earliest years, SAE’s grounding designs incorporated advanced horizontal and vertical copper conductor, electrode systems, and a conductive backfill.
In 1995, SAE developed a proprietary conductive carbonaceous concrete backfill, Conducrete®, which amplifies the performance, extends the useful life, and protects systems from theft.
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.
In 2008, a state of the art manufacturing facility was commissioned, which now enables SAE to manufacture its own products.
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.
