DFB Group is a Newfoundland and Labrador owned and operated, privately held corporation engaged in manufacturing, fabrication, servicing and repair of offshore, marine and industrial equipment.
Originally established as a small welding and metal fabrication shop in 1931, DFB Group has evolved into an integrated and globally-focused entity helping clients meet the 21st century challenges of energy extraction, infrastructure development and maritime transportation.
Building on more than 70 years of experience in multiple industry sectors, DFB Group is a global provider of marine, industrial and oilfield products and service solutions. DFB Group is currently comprised of five strategic businesses:
Each business contributes traditional strengths in manufacturing, servicing and repair to the marine, offshore and industrial sectors. From custom manufacturing and fabrication in Newfoundland and Labrador, to construction and contracting services in western Canada, to ROV deployment systems around the world, DFB Group has established a world-class reputation for safety, quality and dependability.
Through the combination of acquisition and expansion, DFB Group has grown significantly since 2002, when it employed fewer than a dozen people on the St. John's waterfront. Today it employs a large, highly-skilled workforce engaging in a variety of custom metal manufacturing, service and construction work in Newfoundland & Labrador as well as carrying out major project-based work in Western Canada and around the world. With this steady growth, DFB Group has received numerous industry awards and has become the supplier of choice for local, national, and international offshore and industrial clients.
