1989 Founded in Taiwan,Taipei
Leading mobile rugged computing brand
In 1989, GE Aerospace and MiTAC, Inc. established Getac Corporation as a joint venture to supply electronic and information processing equipment to the Taiwanese defense sector. During the 1980s, the U.S. government encouraged collaboration between domestic advanced electronic firms and foreign enterprises to strengthen their competitive positions in the international marketplace. GE Aerospace—the second-largest aerospace electronics supplier to the U.S. government at the time—set its sights on MiTAC, one of Taiwan’s largest computing conglomerates. The goal of this collaboration was to create an independent, locally managed electronics company to supply cost-effective products to Taiwan’s defense sector. The two companies were a perfect fit; both had exceptional quality control standards in place, allowing for the smooth introduction of advanced manufacturing processes. The parties moved quickly, signing the collaboration agreement, and Getac was born.
