Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST) was founded by three business associates; two of the founders remain with the company today. They believed that hiring the right people into a nurturing, collaborative environment would produce a cutting-edge, innovative, and profitable company.
They were right. GST has built a strong corporate culture around integrity, creativity, and loyalty. Turnover is very low. Our employees include a mix of scientists, technologists, field leaders, and bright recruits who bring passion, insight, and experience to our clients. Nearly 25% hold a Ph.D., and many have chaired some of the world's most influential technical consortia. In 2003, GST launched Global Protocols, a spin-off company, which was sold to the White Oak Group in 2008. In 2005, GST increased its wealth of technical acumen by the strategic acquisition of TMC Technologies, Inc. of West Virginia, now known as GST's West Virginia Division.
GST's philosophy has been to grow the company without sacrificing its corporate culture and stability. With a high average growth rate and consistent profits since inception in 1991, GST has achieved financial stability as well. GST retains the highly desirable Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) status with a primary NAICS Code 541712 designation, and is well-positioned to take advantage of new opportunities.
GST provides superior service in the fields of science, engineering, Information Technology (IT), and technical support to worldwide government, industry, and academic clients. GST has built a highly specified workforce that includes experts in these key domains. From projects such as instrument engineering for the Hubble Space Telescope program, to meteorology, software engineering, and satellite communications—GST is committed to technical excellence and customer satisfaction.
GST has built a global reputation for serving clients through effective technology utilization and an intense customer focus. Our passion for innovation, tempered by years of real-world business experience, has made us a technology solution provider of choice for Government and industry alike. We pride ourselves on the public and private partnerships we have built and maintained since 1991.
