About Us



About the Founder

Eric J. Winston founded SFDS in 2005 by happenstance. His construction firm was in the middle of several residential projects when a friend was in need of someone to fabricate an exhibition for Formavison, which then grew into a second, and then a third event. Eric realized that the quick pace coupled with his 15 year construction background were ideally suited for doing special events, and thus SFDS was born starting out in a 1,000 square foot shop to its current 15,000 square foot incarnation.

Eric’s uncanny ability to grasp a concept and see through to the end of a project from the moment an idea is presented is the driving force behind the perfection that SFDS exemplifies. Eric personally oversees every single project that comes through SFDS.
