Celebrating 50 Years of Innovation
GEW is turning 50 years old this year! Not only are we celebrating this momentous achievement, but also 50 years of innovation, a rich history, an exceptional reputation and an extraordinary legacy. For half a century, GEW has excelled in providing clients with the capability and intelligence to detect and protect in contemporary defence and civil operating environments.
GEW’s origins can be traced back to 1968, a period that saw the jump start of the defence and technology sectors, originally in response to the worldwide need for signals intelligence and later expedited by international sanctions on the home front. Our founders’ first steps in the field of technological development became giant leaps that transformed GEW into the world-class organisation it is today.
We chose “Celebrating 50 years of innovation” as the theme for our 50th birthday celebrations, as innovation is at the heart of GEW’s exceptional legacy and continued success in a competitive arena. GEW’s relentless pursuit of innovation and excellence has contributed to not only the company’s success, but also our clients’ ability to effectively operate in their challenging environments – empowering them to protect their civilians, defence forces and national infrastructure for five decades.
We sincerely appreciate your support during the last five decades and we are looking forward to writing the next 50 years of GEW’s history together.
