30 Years of Providing Embedded Computing Solutions

In 1989, Global American, Inc opened our doors and became one of the first Embedded Systems Integrators in the United States. Back then it was called “Industrial” – the idea of Long-Life Embedded computers was unknown. We started by selling slotted SBCs that supported ISA cards and educating our customers on the benefits to using products that we could keep viable for 5-7 years from inception.

Now, 30 years later, we are still pioneers in our field.

We lead the industry in technology, custom solutions and exceptional, personalized service. Rugged Tablets, Fanless PCs, IP65 Rated Panel PCs, Wide Temperature Motherboards – are just a few of our popular products. We know the industry and we know the products. Global American advises our customers knowledgeably and honestly.

While we sell the most state-of-the art IoT-based products, we also specialize in legacy technology because we know our customers still need and use them. In fact, we still support ISA and PCI.

Our valued customers come from markets ranging from military to healthcare and everything in between; many have been with us for over 20 years; trusting us as partners to provide the best solution, at the best price.

From the day we started in 1989, our main core value was Integrity. Our founder, Nizar Jhaver, was adamant that every single interaction with a customer or a vendor be honest and straightforward. We’ve built on that value for 30 years and pride ourselves on the fact that once we earn a customer, we rarely lose them.

In today’s digital, instant gratification world, we provide one-on-one interaction with a dedicated Technical Sales Rep. We know our customers and we understand their industries and their needs. Whatever you purchase from us, you’ll get full integration services. This means we’ll serve as advisers, purchase all compatible parts, integrate them, and then test, stress and provide full burn-in ensuring that our customers receive a 100% viable and compatible product out of the box. Every. Single. Time.

Today there are so many choices for Embedded partners, why not choose the one with the most experience. We have every intention of continuing to learn and grow for the next 30 years.
