Marking 60 years in business!

To celebrate SEC's 60th successful year in business, we have been featured in the Business Times.  SEC was founded in 1955 by Mr John Rubython, the small electrical business worked as a subsidiary to a much larger engineering company (Service Engineering Company) hence the 'SEC'. In the early 1980's two former apprentices (Jeff Mayo and Ian Shepperdson) oversaw a split from the main company and started working on 'niche' contracts within the Aggregates and Quarrying Sector. This partnership enabled the current company to grow and expand into the wide and varied field of specialised electrical contracting.

Joint venture - Ambivent Ltd

We are happy to announce that after many years of working successfully alongside Ambivent Limited, rather than living “over the broom” we have made an honest company out of them..seriously..allowing ‘peace of mind’ to the end user or principal contractor is very important on larger projects. It eradicates those irritating grey areas of wiring issues to controls and plant, containment clashes etc etc. Additional benefits are also reduced administration costs whilst dealing with just one sub contractor. To date, contractors enjoying the benefits of this joint venture are Kier construction, Vinci Construction and Watson & Cox. We are sure this is the start of a very successful period in our history.
