Seco Chile gives employment opportunities to people who have not had the opportunity to formalize their studies – no experience is required, there is training before someone starts work.
In the last 3 years we have grown in terms of number of customers (from 13 to 45), in number of employees (from 95 to more than 300), and the presence has expanded to almost all major cities in Chile, between Iquique and Punta Arenas. An even percentage has been maintained in the types of disability, with physical and intellectual disability being the most represented. There is a high participation of women. There is a group of 12 people with disabilities, who are working as supervisors.
The product is eco-friendly and biodegradable certified. We are the first inclusive company of its kind in Chile in the field of eco-washing of vehicles. We support the labor integration and inclusion of people with disabilities. We work with all types of disability, regardless of whether it is mild or moderate.
