GMW began operations in 1982 in Redwood City, California. Hilton Glavish, Barry MacKinnon and Ian Walker, from the defunct New Zealand company ANAC, came to the US to support their existing North American customers. The company quickly moved from solely Lab Electromagnets into instrumentation, getting into the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) business with the founding of Metrolab Technology in the mid 80’s. Accelerator Physics and MRI drove growth throughout the 80’s and into the 90’s, with the Superconducting Supercollider (SSC) cancellation in 1993 allowing the company to further diversify into additional markets. GMW moved to our current location in San Carlos in 1991, and has expanded our Industrial Road facility three times since, now having 13,000 square feet and adding state-of-the art measuring equipment in magnetic field and electric current.
