Our Story

30 Years of Trusted Grounding & Corrosion Expertise

Innovative technology that ensures utility safety and reliability

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 such as Enbridge, Southwest Gas, Kinder Morgan, OneOk, 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, due to increasing product demands, SAE’s corporate headquarters and main manufacturing facility were merged and relocated to 691 Bayview Dr., Barrie, ON.

Today, SAE is expanding its core grounding business and growing North American distribution. SAE has also launched a variety of new products and services such as ConduDisc®, an encased utility pole plate and pourable conductive backfills ConduFlow® and ConduForm™, used for counterpoise, lightning mitigation, transmission or substation grounding, and switching station applications.

Our History

Founded in 1990, SAE 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 grounding business and growing North American distribution. SAE has also launched a variety of new products and services such as ConduDisc®, an encased utility pole plate and pourable conductive backfills ConduFlow® and ConduForm™, used for a variety of grounding applications.
