About Us

Sticking to what we know,

doing it very well

 

Because good engineering matters

Our goal is to be the long term, trusted, innovation partner for businesses

SAFEgroup Automation (SGA) is a leading Australian provider of control system engineering services. We offer a comprehensive range of control system services, extending from electrical engineering and design through to business system integrations and data analytics.

We are a team of control system engineers who believe that the work we do is important. We believe that every business is different, and our job is to provide whatever resources are missing to allow your business to achieve your system goals, whether that means applying our skills across full end-to-end service agreements or simply providing specialist assistance as needed.


The ultimate success of any control system is driven by the people who utilise it. We could deliver a beautiful, state-of-the-art, integrated SCADA and control system, but if our end-users are not able to use it, then we would not be solving their initial problem.


This is why we specialise in delivering our services collaboratively. Our team works closely with our clients throughout the whole process and ensures that the end result not only solves a business problem, but also develops a user-friendly experience with our product.
