Our Mission

Manufacture innovative and superior professional repair and refinish products for the benefit of our customers, colleagues & employee owners.

Scranton Vision

In the mid-1980s, company owners Don and Marilyn Scranton sold a portion of the company to their employees. Their vision was to take care of their employees so that their employees would take care of the company. Due to this vision, every employee-owner has a vested interest in producing an exceptional "SEM experience."

Founded in 1948

Our success comes from empowering our people. We give them the room and the tools to do their jobs. We make everyone feel like what they do matters — because it does.

SEM Training & Resources


SEM has two teams dedicated to the wellness and fun of our employees. Wellness benefits include an in-house exercise facility, annual wellness fair, and personalized health screenings, including a confidential review with a medical professional.

The Fun Team organizes company outings, SEM family picnics, mile-stone celebrations, and holiday parties throughout the year, including our annual chili cook-off. “Work hard, play hard” is a motto we all live by."
