SAF REFRIGERATION ENGINEERING was founded by Mr. IF Kapdi in 1974 as a small company which handled repairs and maintenance of refrigeration, air-conditioning and ventilation systems. Mr. IF Kapdi, who has over 30 years experience in the field of refrigeration and air-conditioning systems developed his expertise with hands-on work on board various ships and vessels being built by Mazagon Dock Ltd (a premier shipyard owned by the Govt. of India), being repaired in Mumbai Port Trust (a Govt of India undertaking) and other ship repair facilities in and around Mumbai.

His expertise and experience helped evolve the company from handling of minor repairs to major repairs and then to fabrication of HVAC & R equipment and installation of the same. This included fabrication of ducting, fans, coils, condensers & other manufactured items required in the refrigeration & air-conditioning systems. The company also sourced quality bought out items required for the HVAC systems, installed and commissioned the same.

Over a period of 30 years the company developed into an entity which was capable of assessing the requirement of a client, designing the requisite system, procurement of necessary equipment, fabrication of needed components, installing the system, testing and commissioning it. In short it transformed itself from a repairing company into a turn-key project handling establishment. This was the result of total commitment and dedication to quality which Mr. IF Kapdi provided to the company.

Mr. IF Kapdiís obsession with quality made the SAF Refrigeration Engineering a dependable and trusted contractor for major ship builders & owners like Mazagon Dock Ltd, Indian Navy & Indian Coast Guard.
