Company History

GTS HeadquartersIn 1990, Gibson Technical Services (GTS) was founded to provide design and consulting services for cable system operators and equipment manufacturers.

As technology and the cable television industry changed, so did GTS. The company broadened the scope of their services to include fiber optic splicing and equipment installation, as well as FCC proof testing, sweep and plant construction.

GTS' reputation grew with their business, and in 1997, GTS remodeled its facilities to accommodate the growth of its Design & Drafting Group. In 1999, GTS completed construction of its state-of-the art facility in Canton, Georgia, to satisfy its steady growth, as well as the addition of the Construction Group and additional project management staff. In 2002 GTS created a new Wireless Division to integrate wireless solutions. GTS currently employs an average of over 90 Direct Employees and 150 subcontractors.
