History of SCJ Associates, Inc.

In January 1971, three former General Dynamics Corporation engineers joined together to form SCJ Associates, Inc. Out of their small 1,000-square-foot office on the east end of Brighton-Henrietta Townline Road in Rochester, New York, the three partners set out to secure clients and establish their business.

Engineering Company Rochester, NY │ Turnkey Engineering │ SCJ Associates, Inc.
As the country grew and changed in the 1970s, SCJ evolved into a viable company by providing turnkey engineering and manufacturing services. One of the founders, Thurlow “Suds” Sutherland, became the sole shareholder and owner of SCJ in 1988. Ownership of the corporation was extended to the employees through the initiation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan in 2002.

This strong and productive company has manufactured products that are utilized in China, England, Germany, the Netherlands, Brazil, South Korea, Canada, Mexico, and the United States, among other countries. A worldwide business may have grown out of an immediate need, but it has evolved into a well-founded multi-generation business in Rochester, New York.

SCJ has extended our services into the lead-free electronics world and our investment in equipment, personnel, and processes has enabled the expansion of our prototype manufacturing niche into production volumes serving the industrial, medical, aerospace, and defense industries.
