Our Role

At SEDA we understand that our customers in the recycling industry have constant challenges that they face each day. New laws, protocols and regulations are emerging daily and businesses have no choice but to comply or face the consequences. Luckily we at SEDA take our role as the global leader in manufacturing vehicle fluid evacuation systems extremely seriously. We believe that safely removing waste and containments is every business owners responsibility but we also understand how difficult it can be to ensure employees uphold these principals. Our evacuation systems take the headache and guess work out of this equation. Not only will each vehicle be drained and processed to code but our equipment will significantly reduce the labor intensive ways workers have been accustomed to for years. Thus eliminating the need to over hire and dramatically increasing worker safety.

In 1967, after several successful years of working for Mercedes Benz in Stuttgart, Germany, Josef Dagn returned back to his rural home town of Koessen, Austria,
where he rented a small garage. In 1970 he started a radiator repair service for both modern and vintage cars. In 1980 he developed the first SEDA plug, which has now been sold over 200.000 times. In the same year he also presented a complete radiator testing system at the Automechanika trade fair in Frankfurt, German

After expanding the garage Mr. Dagn concentrated on developing devices and specialty tools for cars of reputable enterprises such as Mercedes Benz, Vauxhall, VW, Renault, General Motors, Volvo, Peugeot, Nissan, Ford, Seat, MAN and the German automobile club ADAC. In 1984 SEDA expanded again when SEDA of America was grounded in New York. In 1991, after the development of a SEDA built Sports car, the AC cobra replica which won many awards. It was at this time that Josef Dagn built the first coolant recycling machine. By the end of 1993 the development of the world’s first complete vehicle drainage system was complete.

SEDA began their research and development department which continued to refine existing products as well producing innovative new ones. The SEDA products were very well received in the USA. In 1999 SEDA America was changed to SEDA Environmental Inc and the headquarters was moved to St. Petersburgh in Florida. 2001 was the year that SEDA Environmental Days first took place. A platform where customers, the automotive and recycling industry meet to, discuss new Ideas, standards and products. In 2003 SEDA changed to SEDA-Umwelttechnik GmbH. Due to great success in the Netherlands, SEDA Environmental Benelux B.V. was founded. SEDA successfully installed and still maintains 250 SEDA Systems in the Netherlands. At the same time the European distribution network has increased substantially to include motivated partners in 17 countries.

Due to the rapid expansion, a new production hall with dedicated show and conference rooms was opened in Ebbs, where the 2nd environmental days took place. In the same year SEDA proudly presented the world’s first completely mobile drainage station built into a container.

A company with now over 25 years of experience and a highly motivated, knowledgeable team, SEDA´s future looks bright. SEDA will continue to advance and refine their ELV drainage technology as well as introducing unique, innovative products to dismantler’s worldwide through their ever expanding distribution network.
