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.
In 2002, SAE began the innovation process that led to the development of its revolutionary EnvirAnode Cathodic Protection System. The EnvirAnode System, the only environmentally friendly CP System available, has been successfully installed by major customers.
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, due to increasing product demands, SAE’s corporate headquarters and main manufacturing facility were merged and relocated to 691 Bayview Dr., Barrie, ON.
In 2017, SAE invented and launched an extraordinary product named ConduDisc, a corrosion proof utility pole ground plate that completely took the grounding industry to new levels. Furthermore, the expansion of the SAE conductive backfill collection was advanced with the development of ConduFlow and ConduForm; pourable and formable conductive backfills.
Today, SAE is strengthening and expanding its core grounding solutions. SAE has recently launched a variety of new products including the ConduDisc Flex, a versatile and flexible encased ground plate and our TPG Grounding Screw and TPG Outrigger Pads, included in our new temporary protective grounding line.
