Celebrating 25 years of GBE!

Established on 21st March 1988, GB Electronics (UK) Ltd are proud to be celebrating their 25th anniversary.

Geoff Bullen, founder of GBE, started the company off with little more than an overdraft and a wealth of industry contracts from years of being in the electronics industry. GBE’s first order on the books was received a mere three days after starting the business and the rest, as they say, is history! Starting off solely as a supplier of electronic components, 25 years later GBE now design, manufacture, and supply electronics for a wide range of industries across the globe, and has also recently reached a landmark moment of receiving ISO13485:2012 accreditation for developing medical devices – more news to follow soon.

Sadly Geoff passed away in December 2012, but we are all tremendously proud of what he, his family, and close-knit staff have achieved over the past 25 years. We now look forward to another successful 25 years in honour of Geoff.
