As we navigate through the early months of 2024, the landscape of the year ahead becomes increasingly defined, revealing a horizon adorned with significant events. For Smartgyro, a pioneering force in marine stabilization solutions, the unfolding of 2024 carries unique significance. This is not only an occasion for celebrating the achievements of the past but also a monumental milestone – our 10th anniversary!
The past year was nothing short of transformative for Smartgyro. Amidst global challenges, the commitment to innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction propelled us forward.
Looking back on our journey, it is hard to believe how far we have come, especially when we think about our beginnings. Everything started in the beautiful Gulf of Poets in Italy, where four experienced marine managers and engineers turned a garage idea into Smartgyro. With over 30 years of experience, they pioneered marine stabilization technology. From the initial promising stages of crafting the first prototype, numerous adjustments were made, both in hardware and software. Each iteration was driven by an unwavering commitment to perfection, aiming to achieve unparalleled stabilizing experience. Evolving from a modest prototype to a revolutionary product, Smartgyro gained sea legs with a 92% roll stabilization success during the very first sea trial.
DECADE OF DEDICATION:
Fast forward ten years, and Smartgyro stands as a testament to perseverance, innovation, and unwavering commitment. Our gyro stabilizers have become synonymous with excellence, ensuring boaters and enthusiasts enjoy stability and comfort amidst challenging sea conditions. But our journey didn't stop there. In our pursuit of excellence, we sought partnerships that would amplify our capabilities and reach. Such as our partnership with YANMAR, which fuelled global success. Remarkably, by 2022, Smartgyro's exponential growth necessitated a larger La Spezia headquarters, tripling the team to meet the escalating demand and deliver top-notch stabilizers worldwide.
