Our site in South Africa’s capital Pretoria is the headquarter of our subsidiary GEW Technologies (Pty) Ltd. Established in 1968, GEW is now a major supplier of innovative communication intelligence, spectrum management and security products and systems. We are designing and manufacturing applications for communication monitoring, direction finding, communication countermeasures, spectrum management, perimeter security and force protection at the site in Pretoria.
Originally founded to supply the South African National Defence Forces, GEW has since then internationally grown and today its systems are in use in many countries around the world. GEW profits from modern in-house facilities such as development and design, production centres, environmental and EMC testing laboratories, vehicle and shelter installation facilities as well as an antenna test range.
The two main shareholders are HENSOLDT and the Kunene Finance Company. About 300 employees work at the site in Pretoria. It is situated close to the city centre of Pretoria and only a 20 minutes’ drive away from our other site in South Africa, which is located in Irene.
