History

The company GELAB was founded in 1982 in Gäddede, Sweden. During the past 30 years it has grown from being a small manufacturer in the “Jämtland” region to what is today; a well-established EMS- and contract-manufacturer with Swedish as well as international customers. Throughout the years the company has expanded through organic growth as well as through acquisitions. In 2005 GELAB acquired a design and development company which today has fully been integrated in its operations. Since 2010, the company has a second production facility in Östersund, Sweden. Throughout the years GELAB has shown to be a flexible and sustainable partner that still today has multiple customers that have been loyal since the early days of the company. The company that until march 2012 has been managed by its three founders has since then been acquired by a new owner.
