The oldest engineering firm in Sarnia-Lambton is celebrating its 60th anniversary this month.

Devin Johnson is the new president and CEO of Sarnia’s MIG Engineering, after purchasing the firm from Marty Raaymakers just before Christmas.

Johnson said the transition has been smooth so far.

“It’s been a busy transition for me, just getting up to speed on all of the operation,” said Johnson. “I’ve been involved in a lot of the operations, but not to the level of full responsibility I guess, so it’s been busy, but very well received from staff and from clients. Which is a great support.”

Johnson said while their client base varies,o the industrial sector is really picking up.

“With some of the local refinery companies, that are either oil and gas based or petrochemical based, there seems to be a lot of productivity and a lot of project work that’s been related to those companies,” he said.

Johnson, who was born and raised in Sarnia, was a co-op student at MIG in the 1990s.

He’s a graduate of Lambton College and Lakehead University and spent his graduate years in Alberta before coming back to Sarnia in 2014.
