Greenwich Instruments was incorporated in 1979 producing laboratory test equipment.
Shortly after this, the first non-volatile memory was developed. Called “instant rom,” this 4k of memory plugged into the rom slot on the commodore pet, which was the standard computer at that time. This transformed the unit into a working tool, up until this point the only data storage was cassette tape.
Since then Greenwich Instruments has developed many products, both for their own brand and OEM. Over the years they have taken on a variety of special projects for many companies and organization including; the Ministry of Defence, Rolls Royce, British Aero Space in cooperation with NASA and virtually all the rail companies in the United Kingdom.
The range of products Greenwich Instruments designs and produces are quite diverse, from machinery control systems to baby respiration monitors.
