GTS Gauges Transmitters Switches started its life as Superior Marketing, run by Doug Corder from his home in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Doug had grown the business from nothing with the then IMT brand of instruments (formally known as VDO). During his time, the brand IMT changed it’s name to Tecsis.
When Doug was ready for retirement, Greg Rankine took over the business and moved it across the country to Perth, Western Australia. Working from a shed, business grew due to the new stock availability for WA clients and the time zone advantage for eastern state clients. With 2–3 hours time difference, clients could order after closing time and still receive stock the next day.
After 2 years of steady growth, space became limited, so GTS moved to 5/9 Elmsfield Rd, Midvale Western Australia.
From here, GTS continued to grow. Staff numbers increased to 8, and GTS took on a number of product agencies including the Badger Meter Europa range of flowmeters (AOG, Blancett, Dynasonics, Flo-Tech, Hedland, Impeller, IOG, ModMAG, Oval Gear, Recordall, Vision and Vortex ), Deumo Hand Held Tachometers and Fozmula Level Gauges.
After 7 years at Elmsfield Road, we were tripping over boxes again, and the hunt was on for a new larger premises. After a long 2 year search, GTS moved to our new location of 6 Dayana Close, Midvale, Western Australia in March 2013. With more room to move and grow, GTS is looking forward to the future.
You are always welcome to visit the GTS Store in our new location at Dayana Place, and when you do, feel free to bring a cat … cause we have the room to swing one!
