50 Years of Membership – SGESCO-MAX

SGESCO-MAX were honoured for 50 years of continuous membership at HVIA’s Gala Awards Dinner on Friday night at the Emporium Hotel South Brisbane.

HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking told guests that the company have been a continuous member of HVIA (formerly CVIAQ) for half a century, having joined in 1972. 

“They made an early investment in the association and have been loyal ever since,” Mr Hacking said.

SGESCO-MAX is a privately owned company based in Archerfield, Queensland. The organisation was established by Albert McPherson in 1962, originally as Starter, Generator Exchange Service Company (SGESCO), working in auto electrics, then marine electronics, before evolving into mechanical electronics.

In 2000, Albert acquired Max Instruments, the Queensland distributor of VDO (now Continental) instrument gauges, and re-branded the combined organisation to SGESCO-MAX.

Albert was joined on stage by Bronwyn Moore to receive the commemorative award. 

“Bron has been with the company for 48 of these past 50 years, which is a testament to the type of business SGESCO is,” Mr Hacking added.

Since the turn of the millennium, Albert and his son, Marc, have transformed the business to specialise in vehicle safety and monitoring solutions.

Today it’s a vibrant second-generation business, with youngest son, Scott also joining the company in late 2020 as Managing Director.
