Tom Rochester founded the company in 1989. After graduating from Clemson University with a degree in Civil Engineering, Tom went to work in the commercial construction industry working for a large manufacturer of metal stud and drywall components.
When you meet Tom, you quickly realize that relationships are the most important thing to him. He founded SEAS as he saw a growing need in the market for great architectural representation for the highest quality products in the marketplace. Tom succeeded by outworking those around him, and putting others needs before his own.
Tom is now retired and lives in the lowcounty of South Carolina. He is an avid bird hunter, writer, and man of faith.
He still enjoys talking shop, and is, and always will be a mentor and teacher to those he brought on board at SEAS, to carry on the legacy.
