Southern Electrical Equipment Company (SEECO) was founded in 1920 as a supplier to the electrical utility industry. The company was originally organized and managed by several individuals who had held key engineering and procurement positions with Duke Power, an investor-owned electrical utility based in the Carolinas. Frequently challenged and sometimes frustrated by the difficulty in locating and procuring electrical products that met their utility specifications, these individuals determined to start their own company and supply the very items they had been looking for. Out of that desire to design and manufacture a better product, SEECO was born. The product focus of the company was initially directed toward substation applications. In these early years, SEECO developed a complete line of hook-stick disconnect switches and mechanical connectors; the company also fabricated specialized copper bus bar assemblies, and designed and manufactured substation packages.

Located in Charlotte, N.C., the company's geographical market was originally in the southeast United States, and included regional investor-owned utilities, rural electric cooperatives, and municipal systems. In this time period (1920's, 1930's, and 1940's), many rural areas in the southeast were still without electric power or were served by newly developed cooperative and municipal systems. Due to its' geographic location, products, and engineering capabilities, SEECO was a major supplier of substation apparatus to many of the newly developed electrical systems in rural North and South Carolina, northern Georgia, eastern Tennessee, and southern Virginia. From the 1920's through the 1960's, SEECO was also heavily represented in the electrification of the southern textile industry; many industrial substations erected or expanded in those years were SEECO "projects."
