Officially established in 1984, Guillemot Corporation is a France-based company that designs and manufactures a wide variety of interactive PC hardware and accessories. The product lineup consists of graphics cards and graphics accelerators, TV acquisition cards, sound cards, CD/DVD drives, joysticks, USB steering wheels and a range of devices under many of its award-winning brands. It has a strong global presence with offices in locations that include the U.K., the U.S., Canada, Spain, Germany, Holland, Hong Kong and Italy. Coupled with over 150 qualified worldwide employees, this reach enables the company to deliver quality, high-performance products to customers in more than 30 countries.
Guillemot’s early product line proved that it had more to show than clones of competing offerings. In the mid 1990s, the company stepped up in the research and development department to establish itself as a product innovator. A breakthrough was made with Guillemot sound cards. In 1996, the manufacturer launched a series called the Maxi Sound 64, the first card on the market to offer 64-voiced polyphony. This was followed up by the Home Studio Pro version, which marked the first all-in-one PC-based solution for creating and recording music. The innovation of Guillemot sound cards gave the company the leverage it needed to garner more attention and gain a share of the North American market. Over the years, the company added to its brands by acquiring Thrustmaster and Hercules, two popular lines that still power its portfolio to the current day.
Now enjoying a prosperous relationship with industry leaders such as Microsoft, Guillemot graphics cards, motherboards and digital audio products are among the best in the business, offering power to suit the needs of enthusiasts and professionals alike. With more than 100 awards under its belts, it is clear to see why this company is so widely praised throughout the computer hardware industry.
