About SAE Inc.
SAE’s innovative premium products and services solve the most challenging grounding, AC mitigation and cathodic protection issues. 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 2008, SAE commissioned its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility which now enables SAE to manufacture its own products and to quickly respond to customer requirements. In addition to further developing its core business, SAE is currently focused on establishing global distribution for new products such as ConduForm™: a conductive backfill and ConduFlow™: a pourable backfill.
