Southeastern Surfaces and Equipment (SSE) was established in 1994 as a supplier of athletic flooring, athletic equipment and gymnasium seating. The owners, with a long history in these and other specialty products, wanted to take their experience and create a service based organization. The intent was to not only offer quality products at a competitive price, but to build a “reputation of excellence”. Over the past 20 years, that has remained the main focus of SSE.
