Grace Electronics was established on the Gold Coast in 1971 by Roy Grace. Before starting our firm, Roy earned his engineering qualifications in the Australian Army Signal Corps. During this time he was stationed overseas in Laos, Malaya and Singapore. Before leaving the army in 1966, Roy was the Foreman of Signals in charge of our largest Military Communications Workshop. Following this he trained in the United States for the Space Tracking Industry and work with NASA as a Microwave Communications Specialist during the time of the Apollo and Applications Technology Satellite (ATS) space programs. In the firm's earlier years Roy specialized in Background Music, Intercom, Marine Electronics, Public Address and Two-Way Radio installations.
Times, technologies and markets change and as that has happened our firm has for nearly 50 years been evolving and expanding into new fields including at first Closed Circuit Television and later Information Technology Systems. During the 1980's and 90's our firm was responsible for the design and installation of many of the Audio-Visual Systems installed into some of Queensland's leading International Hotels, Resorts and Shopping Centres. During this era the firm displayed its ability to handle large projects, no doubt in part a result of Roy's experience during his time in the Military and with the Space Tracking Industry. It was also during the early 1990's that I joined the firm following my completion of a Business Degree Majoring in Accounting and Marketing.
Our Company Today
Although I found the areas that I majored in during my years of study at university interesting, I genuinely enjoy working with computers and electronic systems. In my first years with the company I spent most of my time "on the tools" learning about the different types systems that our firm installs. My current responsibilities with the firm include Marketing and Project Management. Through our association with the City Of Gold Coast in developing their Safety Camera Network, it has been necessary for me to gain the Information Technology skills now necessary to make a large Closed Circuit Television System work from a Central Monitoring Room via 4G, ADSL, Ethernet, and Microwave Links to several remote locations.
