Privately-owned, SGESCO-MAX was founded by current owner, Albert McPherson, in 1962. Originally called Starter and Generator Exchange Service Company (SGESCO), the business grew in the 1970s to three branches and over 50 staff providing automotive and electronic servicing of vehicles.

In 2000, the company purchased MAX Instruments, giving it access to the full range of VDO Instruments and control systems, hence the name change to SGESCO-MAX. In 2008 we introduced our own range of designed and manufactured safety systems under the MAX-SAFE name.

Throughout the life of our business, we’ve always maintained our approach to problem solving our client’s issues through high quality, innovative solutions and a customer focus on delivering exceptional service.

“For over 50 years we’ve provided leading automotive solutions to the commercial vehicle industry.”
