Who is Sekco LLC
Our History and Vision:
With an education in both industrial Engineering and Mathematics, the founder of Sekco LLC has worked for over 15 years in international manufacturing companies in the field defense "Automotive" and oil and gas "pipe threading" industry.
His area of expertise has been process analysis, process innovation, new process introduction and equipment optimization. Since the age of 21, after graduating from the University of Houston, the founder has worked in various role and capacities such as Industrial Analyst, Manufacturing Engineer, global process Leader (overseas assignment) and Maintenance Improvement Manager.
Throughout his career, he has developed a passion and talent for process innovation which he demonstrated all through his career early as an engineer but later in his leadership roles with team member by working on common improvement projects.
As an example, in defense automotive, the founder developed automated process for the generation of numerical control programs allowing project lead time for new products to go from an average of 10 days to half a day. This is 20 times faster than the original situation.
In the same company, he developed a mathematical model that allowed the optimization of tombstones in a "Mazak Flexible Manufacturing System" allowing the production to go from 4 operation crews to 2 operations crews.
While in France for 3-1/2 years in his assignment as a Global Process Leader, the founder was responsible for a key process deployed over 28 manufacturing sites in all 5 continents. He had the opportunity to travel extensively working with diverse teams of engineering in all 5 continents. He had the responsibility to be the face of the corporation to all key equipment supplier supporting capital investment, commissioning, maintenance and innovation issues for his process of responsibility. In this case threading to be specific. He has introduced a new process that have become global standards. During that time, working with threading equipment supplier in Scotland, he initiated, developed and led the project that modified an equipment with propriety solutions that allowed it to produce 3 times its maximum output. This was very huge for equipment valued at over 1.2 million Euros.
Most recently as a maintenance planning and improvement manager, the founder was in charge of teams dedicated to equipment optimization for 2 industrial sites in the Houston area doing preventive maintenance, reliability improvements as well as productivity improvements.
With a good sense of the very often missed improvement opportunities and the required combination of attitude, approaches and technical skills required to arrive to great performance improvement; the founder started to notice similar opportunities in the service industry is as consumer of services in his day-to-day life.
It is through that realization that the founder has decided to create SEKCO LLC with a goal to allow the sector to benefit from that Manufacturing experience through process analysis, equipment customization, designing, dedicated tools, utilizing automation tools like robotics.
