General Micro Systems Wins “Business Of the Year” Award in Martin County, Florida

STUART, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Aerospace–General Micro Systems (GMS) East has been named the 2017 Business of the
Year from the Business Development Board of Martin County, Florida
(BDBMC). GMS,
whose East Coast offices are based in Stuart, Fla., is the industry
expert in highest-density, modular, compute-intensive, and rugged small
form-factor embedded computing systems, servers and switches for
defense, aerospace, medical, industrial and energy exploration
applications.

The BDBMC,
Martin County's official economic development organization and
Enterprise Florida, Inc. partner, said GMS and the other companies
recognized in various categories within the Business Appreciation Awards
“provide quality jobs, help expand the local tax base, and, due to the
contributory nature of their businesses, help drive positive economic
activity in virtually all sectors of our local economy.”

In announcing the award, GMS and the company’s CEO Ben Sharfi was cited
as having “demonstrated business excellence, leadership and
vision….[raising] the bar for other high tech businesses to follow” in
Martin County.

“We couldn’t ask for a better location—or better people—for our East
Coast operations than what we’ve found here in Martin County,” Sharfi
said. “This has been an incredible year for GMS, and we expect 2018 to
be even better, with more growth here as we work to increase our
business further into non-military commercial applications that require
the rugged servers and other technologies that only GMS can provide.”

Over the past year, GMS has:

  • Won a prime
    contract
    —estimated at $88 million over three years—wherein the
    U.S. Army will deploy powerful rugged server and display systems
    exclusively from GMS to run multifunction video display (MVD) software
    within Type II medium mine protection vehicles (MMPV).
  • Introduced the S402-LC/SW,
    a fully sealed, low-cost, and small-size rugged conduction-cooled
    family of servers for harsh military/defense/aerospace environments as
    well as industrial and commercial platforms. These servers use the
    same high-performing Intel® Xeon® E5
    processors that Apple® is shipping in its latest “Pro”
    products.
  • Hired Kevin
    Kryzda
    to lead the GMS East office, focusing on expanding the
    company’s rugged server and enterprise equipment into commercial,
    non-defense markets.
