Our core business is manufacturing variable speed milk, water, vacuum and effluent pump controllers in all sizes up to 250kw. From time to time I get asked where the name Sema came from. Sema is the result of my partner Senga (old Scottish name) and I spending a wet Sunday afternoon doodling on pieces of paper as we tried to come up with a suitable name for our new business. Eventually we settled on using the first two letters from both our names SEnga and MAurice. We didn't know at the time about it's connection to the automotive world nor that it appears to mean something in the Thai language?! Our Sema is 100% a NZ owned and operated business and has no connection to any other Sema's.
