Global Electronics Testing Services, LLC (GETS) broke ground on June 13 on a new 10,000 square-foot building at the West Pasco Industrial Park, in Odessa. This expansion is a first step toward qualification as a Defense Logistics Agency-laboratory for testing electronic components.
The Pasco Economic Development Council worked with the electronics testing services company’s representatives to obtain permitting for the project.
The company is one of only a few independent electronic component-testing companies in the global market. Clients served by the company from its Pasco County headquarters, and an office in China, include major industries such as automotive, defense/aerospace, medical and electronics. The company is at the forefront of efforts to eliminate counterfeit or substandard electronic components.
“The additional capacity will enable us to increase our output and allow for quicker turn times for our customers,” said Dan Tang, company president, in a Pasco EDC newsletter.
