What’s in A Name?

gecWell, GEC who were established long before Marconi, have decided under new Managing Director Lord Simpson, to sell off-their Defence and Domestic products and reform the Company into one of the largest Designers and Manufacturers of Telecom and associated equipment.  The name GEC has been dropped after nearly three decades of having Marconi’s as their flagship units, they felt the name Marconi is more suited to their worldwide operations.  Hence from now on the name GEC no longer exists as a main operation and quite rightly to the fore comes the famous and worldwide marconi_logoacclaimed name of Marconi as Marconi plc.

We are delighted that this famous name will be once again well to the fore.
