Seco/Vacuum, a Seco/Warwick Group company, moved its office and shop to a new space. After their fifth year in the North American market, they decided it was time for a move.

The new location stays at the group’s birth city — Meadville, Pennsylvania — but the place is different. At a nearby business park in Meadville, Seco/Vacuum will open a new chapter in the company’s history.

The move was necessitated by continuing new business growth, a requirement to accommodate additional engineering and production staff, and the need to enhance manufacturing capacity to meet customers’ aftermarket support and service demands.

“Our team needed a new home to manage our expansion efficiently,” said Peter Zawistowski, Seco/Vacuum’s managing director. Our prior space served us well for the past couple of years, but to accommodate new employees and increasing customer demands, it was time to move on. Our new offices are much more conducive to teamwork, while affording us generous meeting room space for customer collaboration. The new shop area will not only help us grow our manufacturing capabilities, but it will also increase our parts and service support and provide a research and development facility to test new technologies.”

“Seco/Vacuum’s move to larger administration and manufacturing facilities certainly validates our commitment to the North American region as a primary marketplace for Seco/Warwick’s proven technologies. We look forward to continuing customer acceptance and growth in the region,” said Sławomir Woźniak, CEO of Seco/Warwick Group.

2022 marks the fifth anniversary of the Seco/Vacuum brand. In the most recent full year of financial reporting ended December 31, 2021, the company wrote orders for 40 percent of Seco/Warwick Group’s total international vacuum furnace business. The company’s portfolio of customers continues to grow in the first half of 2022 for both new equipment as well as support for its installed base.

Seco/Vacuum offers all-vacuum technologies that are engineered to run clean and cool, operate more efficiently than legacy furnaces, produce cleaner parts, and reduce environmental impact by eliminating toxic emissions.
