GREEN — Growing from a small, family-founded business beginning in Stark County in 1985 to now over 100 skilled employees in Green, Seco Machine is continuing to expand to serve its global client base.
in August, Seco moved most of its operations from Jackson Township to its new 120,000-square-foot, one-story structure on 12 acres of former cornfield at the southeast corner of Mayfair and Greensburg roads.
Started by parents Richard and Mary Seccombe (both now deceased) and sons Thomas and Stephen, Seco Machine has flourished and since 2010 has been a division of the A. Stucki Co., an engineering-based company near Pittsburgh.
Seco produces cast and forged metal products with extreme accuracy for rail, automotive and other industrial customers. The firm also supplies custom-molded urethane products, including cast and molded urethane parts to a wide variety of industrial customers. Its machines also cast iron skillets for many leading cookware companies.
State-of-the-art robot cells are used in many of the processes, and more will be added as the company grows. The robot cells aid in production output in terms of quality for smarter and faster delivery.
“We manufacture mainly railroad components [as] our core business products,” said Thomas Seccombe, the firm’s senior vice president and general manager, during a recent tour of the facility. “Our manufacturing capabilities primarily include mold making, precision turning and milling.”
