GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will commemorate its 50th anniversary in February 2020. In recognition of this milestone, GSSI will be celebrating all year long with festivities that will showcase the company’s history of innovation.
“This year marks the 50th anniversary of Geophysical Survey Systems.  GSSI’s founders, Rex Morey and Art Drake, started the company in a garage in Salem, New Hampshire in 1970. GSSI’s first GPR system – and the first commercial system sold in the world – was introduced in 1971, and we’ve come a long way since then. It was followed by a series of other “firsts”: including the first portable GPR, the first system capable of real-time data processing, the first system for rebar location, the first multi-channel GPR array, the first system for search & rescue and the first GPR system for measuring pavement compaction, among many others. This past year, we were the first to commercialize a GPR system for localization – an application that promises to solve one of the most difficult hurdles for autonomous vehicles: navigating in bad weather and winter conditions. Our commitment to push the boundary of technological innovation has never been stronger.” said Christopher Hawekotte, President of GSSI.
“We would not have been able to achieve these milestones without recognizing our amazing employees. Our company has grown from that two-person team in a garage to one that now employs almost 100 people in a modern 72,000 square foot facility in Nashua. In 2019 we were proud to be named the Best Place to Work by Business New Hampshire magazine, and to have been recognized as a Presidential E-Award recipient by the U.S. Department of Commerce. It’s been a tremendous 50 years.”
Recently, Senator Jeanne Shaheen met with GSSI employees and toured their headquarters. “Over the past five decades, GSSI has grown into a globally recognized leader in high-tech innovation and has strengthened the New Hampshire economy in the process,” said Senator Shaheen. “This success is a testament to the quality of their cutting-edge products, as well as the dedication of their skilled workforce. Congratulations to GSSI on celebrating 50 years in business and best wishes for the next 50 years.”
GSSI invites their customers to celebrate with them throughout the year. Events include special recognition at the World of Concrete and ConExpo, a guest lecture series, customer success stories on the blog, and a glimpse behind-the-scenes on our social media channels. In their annual calendar, product timelines, industry innovations, and company history are weaved together with customer survey photos.
