How do you optimize the performance and cost of a product while maintaining its level of safety? S-E-A experts have the ability to help our clients look at products from every angle to ensure the highest quality and approval rating on the market.

Consumer demand and the entrepreneurial spirit have resulted in a vast array of new products manufactured both domestically and abroad. While there are many positive aspects to this phenomenon, the question of manufacturing standards and product safety becomes increasingly complex.

We've been called on to perform testing in cases where there has allegedly been injury or damage from products and now, our nearly 50 years of experience has resulted in our status as a leader in pre-market testing of everyday products to identify and mitigate risk for retailers and their customers, and to assist manufacturers in making products that perform to their lofty standards.

Products presented to the S-E-A team are exhaustively examined by design and product performance with the most advanced instruments, to determine the presence or absence of claimed defects and/or to identify potential safety risks. Though most of this testing is done by thoroughly running a product through its primary functions, simulation work also has many benefits and advantages.

Special attention is paid to government, industry, ISO and client standards. Our mechanical, electrical and materials engineers, among others, test everything from pressure cookers to gym equipment, allowing retailers to offer the kind of user safety that American consumers take for granted. Careful consideration is given to the original product design and modifications; warnings, labels, instructions, and recall notices; and appropriate safeguarding mechanisms.
