Denis Nelligan

15 March 2017

It is with much sadness that we announce the death of Denis Nelligan senior who passed away peacefully on Thursday 2nd March aged 91. Denis was the original founder and Chairman of SLE (Specialised Laboratory Equipment, as it was then) in 1956, some 61 years ago.

After establishing SLE, Denis dedicated himself to the development of the company leading it from very modest beginnings as a part-time project on his kitchen table to the substantial and successful company that it has become today.

The good work we do here at SLE was his proudest achievement and his legacy is the continuing contribution made by SLE to the care of babies that have been treated with our ventilators.

As well as being a huge personal loss to his family, Denis was a well-loved friend and work colleague to many of the staff at SLE who worked with him over the years, and we have been deeply saddened by his passing.
