From the smooth waters of Australia’s North West shelf, through the turbulent and often unpredictable Bass Strait, the savage magnificence of the Pacific Ocean and on to the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, the sea is an integral part of Australian heritage.
GME’s approach to marine product development is somewhat different to most of our competitors. Our founder, Ted Dunn, was an avid sailor for most of his life, and his first-hand grasp of a mariner’s needs coupled with his engineering expertise provided the catalyst for many GME marine products.
A number of our staff and Managers continue to maintain a direct involvement in the marine industry. This interaction ensures customer feedback is continually channelled into product enhancement and the generation of new product ideas.
Since the early 1970s GME has been at the vanguard of marine electronics in the Australian region. The blending of hands-on experience with creative software engineering has produced a host of innovative GME Marine products including the world’s first VHF radio with totally integrated direct dial telephone facility, the compact size COSPAS/SARSAT compatible EPIRBs and the GR series of marine stereos. All proudly bear the GME logo.
All GME marine products undergo stringent testing to ensure they will provide years of trouble free service in the harsh marine environment. We are also sensitive to product aesthetics; our goal is to achieve a harmonious balance between good looks and practicality.
