S-E-A Settled into New Headquarters

After years of planning, the new S-E-A Columbus and corporate campus is open for business.  The impressive new facility at 7001 Buffalo Parkway sits on a 48-acre site next to the Anheuser-Busch brewery.  The new four-building and testing campus boasts over 100,000 sq. ft. stretching across 13 acres. Occupying a prime sight location near I-71 and I-270, the new facility and adjacent land allow the company to better serve the legal, manufacturing and insurance industries through professional testing and analysis.

A central additive to the new facility is an array of progressive vehicle testing grounds, which include a 70,000 sq. ft. outdoor asphalt vehicle test pad, an off-road vehicle course, an earthen hill with various grades, and a rollover test pit. These new details will be used to better test a variety of vehicles and equipment on an elevated scale. Additionally, the facility houses an updated test sled facility that is considerably longer (at least 50%) than the previous version, enabling higher-speed testing and better control of the sled motion.

The campus also boasts expanded chemical and materials laboratories and candle testing facility, many exam rooms, and private bays for confidential testing on behalf of clients.
