It is about 35 years since
Ernest Dawes established Scientific Glass Engineering in a
tiny garage at the backyard of a house in Melbourne, Australia.
Today, SGE has two modern facilities engaged in developing
and manufacturing Chromatography and Analytical Products.
SGE has grown substantially with 250 employees and a distribution
and support network in nine countries, including worldwide
The SGE team is continually developing innovative ideas for
products and technologies that make a difference for our customers.
SGE started solely as a syringe manufacturer,
but now manufactures a vast array of products for chromatography
and mass spectroscopy. SGE is an ISO accredited company. We
are proud of the fact that all major instrument manufacturers
in our field rely on and incorporate SGE manufactured components
in their systems.
For the future we remain heavily committed to our research
and development, to allow us to continue to bring innovative
technologies and solutions to our valued partners in analytical
science in all corners of the world.
At SGE we are conscious of the environmental impact of our
operations and strongly pursue environmentally sustainable
activities. Many years ago we purchased a substantial land

We converted grazing land to a Eucalyptus Blue Gum plantation
that is now nearing maturity. Over the time it has taken for
these trees to mature we have produced many times more trees
specifically for paper production than our whole organisation
