GARMIN: THE RESTLESS
Gary Burrell and Dr. Min Kao worked together for the aerospace and automotive giant AlliedSignal before the two technology enthusiasts decided in 1989 to establish their own company. The company name consisted of the first three letters of the two founding forenames ("Gar-Min"), Garmin first settled in Olathe in Kansas (USA). As a result, the specialists for navigation devices moved their headquarters first to Taiwan, in 2000 to the Cayman Islands and ten years later to Schaffhausen, Switzerland. During the many relocations, however, the operative heart remained in Olathe, where Burrell and Kao are still active today. Almost adhering to their roots, they concentrated together with their employees above all on the manufacture of robust navigation devices for maritime and aviation applications.
GARMIN PRODUCTS: EVERYONE FINDES ITS WAY
Burrell and Kao not only wanted to serve the above-mentioned sectors with their products, but also to share their know-how with the whole world. While the outdoor area and the associated navigation devices for cars were still given little attention, Garmin soon found himself in the more "public" area, without neglecting maritime and aviation. Garmin stands for high-quality electronics and was awarded several times. The Americans gradually specialized in pedestrian navigation. In addition, the technology company still manufactures sophisticated bicycle computers today. Among runners, Fitness trackers and Smartwatches from Garmin are particularly popular. The watches and devices from the series Vivosport, Vivosmart and the Running Watches from the Forerunner product series are particularly well known here. So: Whether on the water, in the air or on the ground - with Garmin everyone finds his way.
