From his humble beginnings as a tradesman marine electrician, founding owner, Duncan Macnab, found his passion in sales. The sale of welding equipment and servicing the ship repair industry spread into the industrial engineering sector. These tangible sales would evolve from exclusively equipment to temporary personnel in the form of operators. The growing demand for reliable personnel bread the beginning of SFG Engineering Services, a fully functional personnel services operation over a multitude of sectors.
