About SEKA

Successfully engaged for clean air at the workplace.

SEKA can be found whe­re­ver it is too dus­ty, whe­re the air is too dan­ge­rous to brea­the and re­pres­ents a se­rious health ha­zard.

The com­pa­ny ba­sed in Land­au, Ger­ma­ny, has re­co­gni­zed the signs of the time at an ear­ly sta­ge and has de­ve­l­o­ped into a spe­cia­list in all fiel­ds con­cerning pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on. The his­to­ry of SEKA is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by a spi­rit of in­ven­ti­on. The suc­cess of the com­pa­ny is ba­sed upon in­no­va­ti­ve so­lu­ti­ons, pa­ten­ted tech­no­lo­gies and a con­stant flow of new ide­as.

SEKA success on a large scale...

We were able to equip the big­gest Ca­ter­pil­lar fleet in Eu­ro­pe with more than 100 ve­hi­cles...

History:
Pioneering the development of protective ventilation

The beginnings of SEKA date back all the way to the seventies. At that time the machine designer Lothar Müller owned a small workshop in Altlußheim in the Pfalz region of Germany and developed ultrasonic welding systems for the packaging industry. But the increasing awareness for our environment in the eighties opened up completely new business activities.

Preisgekrönte Technologie

Award-winning technology

SEKA is able to point to nu­merous so­lu­ti­ons which are uni­que on the mar­ket and pro­vi­de pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on at the hig­hest le­vel. One award SEKA re­cei­ved for its out­stan­ding ac­com­plish­ments was the In­no­vatin Award 1998 of the Rhein­land-Pfalz re­gi­on.

Leading on a demanding market

SEKA is an on­go­ing suc­cess sto­ry. With more than 100 ve­hi­cles we have equip­ped the big­gest Ca­ter­pil­lar fleet in Eu­ro­pe. The big­gest Eu­ro­pean land­fill also re­li­es on SEKA tech­no­lo­gy for pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on. Just as the big­gest com­pa­ny in Ger­ma­ny spe­cia­li­zing in the dis­po­sal of as­be­stos. SEKA pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on sys­tems can be found on the big­gest con­struc­tion ma­chi­nes as well as on mini ex­ca­va­tors.

Driving force in the technological development

When it co­mes to pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on SEKA ist lis­ted among the first ad­dres­ses. We pro­vi­de pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on sys­tems sin­ce 1988 and were the first ven­dor of­fe­ring sys­tems con­fir­ming to the ZH 1/84 stan­dard of the Ger­man Ci­vil En­gi­nee­ring Co­ope­ra­ti­ve TBG. We were ac­tive­ly in­vol­ved in the de­fi­ni­ti­on of this stan­dard and are re­gu­lar par­ti­ci­pant of the mee­tings of the Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee of the TBG.

...but also in small dimensions...

Milestones:
New technologies, innovative impetus

SEKA is one of the pioneers in the field of protective ventilation. We not only developed one of the first systems for industrial applications. Within a quarter of a century we also developed into one of the leading vendors in this field. This development was characterized by numerous innovations which led to several patents.

Highlights of a success story

The his­to­ry of SEKA is a de­ter­mi­ned way into the fu­ture, cha­rac­te­ri­zed by tech­no­lo­gi­cal high­lights and a suc­cess­ful de­ve­lop­ment:

  • 1985 Foun­ding of KLM by ma­chi­ne de­si­gner Lo­thar Mül­ler
  • 1988 De­sign of the very first pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on sys­tem for in­dus­tri­al ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons
  • 1990 Foun­ding of SEKA Schutz­be­lüf­tung GmbH
  • 1992 Trans­fer to lar­ger fa­ci­li­ties in Land­au-Woll­me­s­heim
  • 1994 Pre­sen­ta­ti­on of SBAU50 as a new ma­chi­ne ge­ne­ra­ti­on with in­te­gra­ted air cir­cu­la­ti­on sys­tem
  • 1998 Pre­sen­ta­ti­on of SBA80, a pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on sys­tem of a new ge­ne­ra­ti­on with the big­gest ac­tiva­ted car­bon fil­ter at a mi­ni­mum of space
  • 2002 Ex­pan­si­on of the pro­duc­tion ca­pa­ci­ty in for­mer army bar­racks
  • 2006 Trans­fer of the sub­si­dia­ry to new fa­ci­li­ties in Rohr­bach
  • 2012 Pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the com­pres­sed bre­a­thing air sys­tem ADLA-NG, co­ve­r­ed by nu­merous pa­tents. First pro­to­ty­pe ap­pro­val for a sys­tem of this kind.
  • 2019 The company SEKA is continued under the name SEKA Umwelttechnik GmbH in the 2nd generation

...as well as very special fields...

Philosophy:
Focus on human health

Securing the health of humans at the workplace is not only a major task of society. For SEKA, it is a real challenge calling for creative solutions on proven technologies. For more than a quarter of a century we concentrate on the driver cabin of construction machines and guarantee clean air even in highly contaminated environments.

...as well as unusual ones...

Maintaining performance and health

Em­ployees who are con­stant­ly ex­po­sed to con­ta­mi­na­ted en­vi­ron­ments will so­o­ner or la­ter suf­fer se­rious health im­pair­ments. The con­se­quen­ces are li­mi­ted re­s­pon­siven­ess, de­crea­sed per­for­mance and in­crea­sed ab­sence due to sick­ness. But tha­t’s not all. Ex­po­sure to such si­tua­ti­ons over pro­lon­ged pe­ri­ods of time can also lead to chro­nic ill­nes­ses.

Health risks are liability risks

Any com­pa­ny is re­s­pon­si­ble for the phy­si­cal well-being of its em­ployees. This calls for spe­ci­fic mea­su­res to pro­tect their health whi­le they are working in ha­zar­dous are­as. Not only for ethi­cal re­a­sons, but also to eli­mi­na­te un­cal­culable lia­bi­li­ty risks. SEKA is de­di­ca­ted to pro­tect em­ployes from pos­si­ble health risks, thus li­mit­ing the en­tre­pre­neu­ri­al risks for its cust­o­m­ers.

Setting new technological standards

SEKA is de­di­ca­ted to be a ma­jor dri­ving force in the pro­tec­tive ven­ti­la­ti­on mar­ket. Not only as far as the de­ve­lop­ment of new tech­no­lo­gies is con­cer­ned, but also when it co­mes to de­ve­lo­ping the re­spec­tive stan­dards. For this re­a­son, we re­gu­lar­ly par­ti­ci­pa­te in the mee­tings of the Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee of the Ger­man Ci­vil En­gi­nee­ring As­so­cia­ti­on in or­der to ac­tive­ly take part in de­ve­lo­ping the le­gal frame­work.

...and other "hot" issues.
