Garmin is founded on the principles of innovation, convenience, performance, value, and service.
What began as a brainstorming session of a handful of engineers around a card table in 1989 has evolved into a worldwide collaborative effort of thousands of colleagues. Garmin’s goal, as it was then, remains simple: To create navigation and communication devices that can enrich lives. The company’s innovative products span various areas of interest, including automotive, aviation, marine, fitness, outdoor recreation and wireless applications.
A member of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN), Garmin International exemplifies growth for everyone involved – consumers, employees, investors and retail partners. The secret to Garmin’s success isn’t even that much of a secret. From the time that the founders focused on selling their first product using GPS (Global Positioning System), Garmin has hired and surrounded itself with creative minds and passionate spirits.
Garmin does not just design and sell products, but embrace the lifestyles. From aviation to marine, automotive to fitness, wireless solutions to outdoor recreation, Garmin employees are in the air, on the water, in the woods, behind the wheel and on the run. And the company is always thinking of ways to adapt and improve. At Garmin, you never know how the next great idea will be born. But you know it’s coming soon.
