SEMCO was invented by Lawrence Serra, in 1976 when he could not find any product on the market to keep his teak looking good. While not setting out to be in this business he was quickly overwhelmed with requests for his new teak sealer. The rest is history. Without ever advertising these products and relying strictly on word of mouth, SEMCO has spread worldwide. It is now available through Chic Teak.
SEMCO is still family owned and operated; they are always available to answer their 800 phone number, or email, for customer support. SEMCO is used on pleasure boats, aboard cruise ships, in theme parks and is recommended by major teak furniture dealers. They proudly supply several boat, canoe, and furniture manufacturers, as well as prominent hotels and shopping centers among our customers.
