George Apsley and Tony Baliotis founded the company, hence G.T. Microwave, in 1995. It's a merger between the engineering and manufacturing capabilities of George Apsley and a RF design consulting firm owned by Tony Baliotis. From 1978, George had worked for 10 years as the Chief Engineer for KDI/Triangle. Coincidentally, Tony also worked at KDI/Triangle as the RF Design Manager. Thereafter, George worked for Waveline Solid State as the Chief Engineer and Tony as an independent RF consultant for various high profile companies. G.T. Microwave is a small, veteran-owned business incorporated in the state of New Jersey.

All of G.T.
