Safurnco SA (Pty) Ltd. was established in 1957 to serve Iscor Steel's planned expansion in Vanderbijlpark. A small combustion company called Protectair bought Safurnco from its then owners, Blue Circle Cement, in 1984, the name Safurnco was retained. Safurnco continued to service the Iron & Steel Industry as well as the Power Generation (namely Eskom) Industry.

Over the years Safurnco gradually dropped most of their Metal Processing product range in order to specialise in the Combustion Field. Safurnco have over the last 26 years been a family owned business, until being sold to the present owners in 2005. Safurnco then bought Credfeld (Pty) Ltd,also a combustion company, in 2007 and have thereby established themselves as the leading combustion company to the Power Generation Industry in sub Saharan Africa.
