Founder Bill McFadden named our company after a small English coastal village, Warsash (the ash of wars). He was here, serving in Coastal Command in the RAAF, when vessels left for the D-Day landings in Normandy.

Bill was one of a select few with knowledge of the then top secret development now known as radar. This interest in scientific developments led him to found the company.

Managing Director Derek Huxley joined Warsash Scientific in 1993, having graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Technology degree majoring in Optoelectronics. The company continued to grow to become a leading Australian provider of state-of-the-art scientific equipment from suppliers worldwide.
