Gary started ProFab Steel Ltd. in Surrey, BC in 1988 with Jurgen Meier. They began fabricating steel equipment for the sawmill sector. Gary ran the office – estimating, detailing, purchasing, project management and coordination. As the business grew, ProFab moved into Langley where they expanded into structural and miscellaneous steel. In 1998 Profab Steel (1998) Ltd. was incorporated and soon Jurgen retired and Jay El Sayed joined Profab as Gary’s partner.
