News & Community
SEH America's commitment to quality and continuous improvement in our products is carried over to our commitment to the local and global community. We are proud of our tradition of investing time, resources, and leadership in the Vancouver area and beyond. Here is a sample of how we are making a difference...
A Partner In Learning
SEH America believes investing in our schools is investing in our future. We have partnered with the Evergreen School District to provide opportunities for school students to explore careers in a variety of math, science, technology, and manufacturing related fields.
Our High School Internship Program supports young people in learning new skills, increases confidence in their own abilities, and gives them excellent experience for their resumes. The interns work on dedicated projects under the guidance and supervision of SEH employee "Mentors". Some employees have even returned after graduation as SEH America employees.
We are extremely proud of the generosity of employees. Employees have donated hundreds of toys and clothing items to local low income children, as well as clothing, food, and gifts for entire households.
Some of the organizations supported are Salvation Army, SHARE House, and Next Step.
Global Relief Efforts
SEH-A employees have contributed to help those affected by natural disasters, such as the events in Haiti and Japan. The Company has then matched its employee donations.
As a Japanese owned company, we believe in celebrating the cultural diversity and camaraderie between our two countries. Dr. Chihiro Kanagawa, CEO of SEC (Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd), the parent company of SEH America, established a beautiful Japanese friendship garden provided by Clark College on its main campus.
Armed Services Support
We've been dedicated to supporting active military personnel, their families, and veterans through hiring events and programs, as well as maintaining policies that support reservists.
