After 50 years, can we keep our edge?

Can we keep innovating?

Can we continue to lead?

Can we get better?

Piece of cake.

Celebrating over 50 years of finding the truth. The truth is, being an industry leader is never easy. In over 50 years, S-E-A has pretty much done it all. Forensic engineering and investigation. Vehicle testing and safety. Consumer product testing and health sciences. Just to name a few. And we do it all with the best talent and technology in the business. So, yeah. We’ll blow out some candles. And we’ll eat some cake. Then we’ll get back to working on the next 50 years. TH
