GME’s new, state-of-the-art Winston Hills facility will enable the privately owned Australian company to grow its already considerable share of the radio communications market.
The new headquarters houses the industry’s latest in 10-head surface mount machines and a range of world-class machinery.
GME’s General Manager Sales & Marketing, Peter Langbart said, “We maintain our investment in technology and as customer’s needs change, we design radio communication products that continue the tradition of exceptional performance, innovative features and value for money.”
By keeping the bulk of GME production in Australia, stringent quality controls are preserved, claims the company. Particularly important when manufacturing vital safety-critical products like EPIRB and PLB emergency beacons and commercial radio products.
With impressive updates in its production line, the new GME HQ will function as a local manufacturing plant for the company’s wide range of products.
A wholly owned New Zealand subsidiary complements over 2000 accredited Australian resellers who are the backbone of GME’s domestic presence. In addition to this, distribution partners in more than 40 countries power GME’s growing international network.
The move from Gladesville to Winston Hills unites GME’s manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing departments – including an expanded Research & Development department.
The complex will house GME’s workforce which includes design engineers, factory assemblers and test technicians, in addition to the sales and customer service teams.
The company first started as Standard Components in Leichardt during the late 1950s, GME adopted its current moniker in 2006 as its international presence grew.
The Winston Hills head office is ultra-modern, reflecting the company’s progressive attitude and displays the distinctive red, white and black GME colours.
