Trajan Completes Acquisition of SGE Business

Trajan Scientific and Medical has completed its acquisition of the Chromatography and Liquid Handling businesses of SGE Analytical Science (SGE). SGE was founded by Ern Dawes in Melbourne Australia in 1961 and has remained in the Dawes family for over 50 years. Its business, focussed on components and consumables used in scientific analysis has grown to around 300 staff worldwide with manufacturing operations in Ringwood Australia and subsidiary offices in the USA, Europe and Japan.

Dawes Holdings, the parent company of SGE, owned by Peter Dawes, will retain a range of assets, including the ETP Electron Multiplier business. Under the new ownership SGE will continue to work closely with ETP and provide global support and distribution services as is the case today.

History of SGE Analytical Science

In 1960, Ernest Dawes established Scientific Glass Engineering in a tiny garage at the backyard of a house in Melbourne, Australia. Today, there are two modern facilities engaged in developing and manufacturing Chromatography and Analytical Products.

SGE started solely as a syringe manufacturer, but now the SGE Analytical Science portfolio includes a vast array of products for chromatography and mass spectrometry. We are proud of the fact that all major instrument manufacturers in these fields rely on and incorporate our components in their systems.

For the future we remain heavily committed to our research and development, to continue to bring innovative technologies and solutions to our valued partners in analytical science in all corners of the world.



We are conscious of the environmental impact of our operations and strongly pursue environmentally sustainable activities.  Recently our ingenuity and innovation led to a saving of 2.3 million litres of water per annum.  Click here for more information on this water saving intiative.
