More than just a supplier

SECA

As one of Australia’s leading equipment suppliers for sewer and plumbing equipment, Sewer Equipment Company (Aust), better known as SECA, is committed to providing quality parts and services, backed up by years of experience.

Established in 1967, SECA is a top distributor throughout the Australasian region of international CCTV brand iPEK and promises to deliver a solution that gets workers back on the job as soon as possible.

National technical services manager Colin Handley says the company has continued to expand its product range from many leading overseas suppliers and local manufacturers, to offer the most up-to-date and advanced equipment available.

“SECA has been in the trenchless industry for over 50 years, and the company has grown exponentially since introducing iPEK CCTV cameras to the Australian market,” he says.

With a niche focus in CCTV inspection equipment and a large team of 10 technicians located across Sydney, Victoria, and Brisbane, SECA’s CCTV service team are an in-house crew that are European factory trained to support SECA’s range of cameras.

“We have a very large team of technicians to support the products and we have a large offering of spare parts to keep all the products we sell operating at peak performance,” he says.

“We service all our equipment and cameras in-house, which is our point of difference in the industry.

“Anyone can sell the camera’s, but we make sure we keep people operating and running.”

SECA’s workshops are equipped with specialist tools and exclusive software from the manufacturers

These tools and software allow their technicians to quickly diagnose any problems and get customers operational as quickly as possible.

Despite what were uncertain times, the company has expanded even further, constructing SECA Academy, the company’s brand-new training facility in Sydney’s southwest.

It hosts anything from nationally recognised courses to its how-to short courses, which will be available later this year.

“In our new facility we’ve built a mock sewer system to test equipment and train students safely and have plans to add more classes to the Academy,” says Handley.

The new facility can accommodate up to 10 students, offering state-of-the-art equipment for students to use during their practical assessments.

SECA currently has nationally recognised CCTV courses provided by its RTO Asset Training (RTO number 91255).

The company uses the latest in asset management software, WinCan VX, so students will be armed with the most up to date knowledge and skills that are expected of a qualified CCTV operator undertaking conduit inspections and reporting on the condition of conduits in Australia.

SECA’s mission is to train its students to embody its evolving goal, which is to ensure its customers have the best experience by providing a one-stop-shop where customers are provided with sales, support and service, plus training for the products they buy.

“The service department is what keeps people coming back; the fact that we can keep the equipment operational and running, that’s just as important as the equipment itself,” says Handley.

The SECA team, will be in attending the No-Dig Down Under Expo, and will be displaying its top-quality products ranging from CCTV equipment, pipe plugs to the world’s first emission free jetter, the eCityJet.
