The Company:    

Garnet Instruments Ltd. began its operations in October 1993.  It is located in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada.  The facility consists of three 4000 square foot warehouse/office bays which house the manufacturing, assembly, shipping, service and office areas.  In 2000, Garnet Technologies Inc. was set up in Granbury, Texas as our US subsidiary to provide quicker distribution, direct sales, and on-site technical support if required, to our network of dealers and distributors within the United States. 

Our areas of technical expertise include digital and analog electronics, micro-power circuitry, and fibre optics. Our goal is to investigate product requirements which have not been addressed by existing products in order to provide high quality, unique equipment specifically designed to address those requirements, particularly in the petroleum and recreational vehicle industry. 

The success of the past 19 years has demonstrated that we are a progressive, innovative company with a proven ability to meet the needs of the market. We believe that product support coupled with quality engineering and use of quality components has contributed greatly to our growth and long term success.
