How we came about:

SS Scientific FactoryThe company was formed in 1996 after two long-serving VG employees found themselves redundant following the changes in company structure and location under Fisons and Thermo ownership.  With a new ‘home’ in the south of England we set about building a company to supply the needs of RGA manufacturers and allied vacuum / instrumentation businesses.  We started trading in July 1997 and our steady growth and expanding customer base is testament to our resolve and commitment to build a successful business.  In January 2012 we moved from rural premises shown above to a newly re-fitted industrial unit in Eastbourne (shown right).
