Our History
Originally incorporated in 1976 as Saftronics (SAF), the early years of operation were based in Guelph, and then Stratford. In 1987, Sutherland-Schultz Limited acquired SAF's Canadian shares, and the company was moved to Kitchener as a division of Sutherland-Schultz and subsequently as Brock Solutions.
In July 2010, SAF transitioned once again into an independent entity with a dedicated focus to develop and manufacture drive solutions and solid-state starters. The current team boasts a combined 150 years of drives manufacturing and industry experience. At SAF we are commited to maintain and grow the SAF brand and the unrivaled quality and reliability that has become synonymous with the SAF name.
