Innovator, entrepreneur and servant leader will be remembered for his
legacy of growing Garmin from a start-up company to a global leader in
GPS technology

OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), today
announced that Gary Burrell, aviation pioneer and co-founder of Garmin
Ltd., passed away on June 12, 2019, at the age of 81. Mr. Burrell
retired in 2002 and continued to serve as Garmin’s co-Chairman until
2004 when he was named Chairman Emeritus.

Mr. Burrell co-founded Garmin with Dr. Min Kao in 1989 with the vision
of creating products powered by an emerging technology known as the
Global Positioning System, or GPS. Thirty years later, Garmin has grown
from a handful of engineers into a global location and communication
product powerhouse with more than 13,000 associates in 60 offices around
the world. Of his many accomplishments, Gary was most proud of the jobs
he helped create.

“Gary Burrell has been my friend, mentor and partner for more than 30
years,” Kao said. “His vision, values, engineering skills and commitment
to serving our customers have been the foundation for the growth of our
company. It has been both a great privilege and a blessing to have known
this amazing man and I know his legacy will live on.”

In a career spanning 50 years, Burrell motivated and mentored thousands
of employees. Among them was Garmin President and CEO Cliff Pemble, one
of Burrell’s first hires.

“While Gary will be remembered by many as one of the great entrepreneurs
of our age, I will remember the unusual way in which he led our company,
something he called servant leadership,” Pemble said. “Whether it was
about creating the best product or his behavior as a leader, Gary always
considered the impact to others before himself. His example not only
inspired my contribution to Garmin, it also positively influenced me as
a husband and father. I am forever grateful for the rich and enduring
legacy of Gary Burrell.”

Prior to launching Garmin in 1989, Burrell held leadership positions at
marine and aviation electronics companies including Lowrance
Electronics, King Radio Corporation and AlliedSignal. He is widely
regarded as one of the leading innovators of integrated avionics, having
designed and developed the first successful NAV/COMM for the general
aviation market.

At Garmin, Gary expanded his vision for integration with the GNS 430/530
product family, which combines GPS technology with traditional aviation
navigation and communication systems and a color moving map. Gary went
on to conceive the G1000 cockpit system which today is operating in
thousands of aircraft around the world from small piston powered
airplanes through mid-sized business jets. Burrell earned his bachelor’s
in electrical engineering at Wichita State University and his master’s
from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

For decades, Garmin has pioneered new GPS navigation and wireless
devices and applications that are designed for people who live an active
lifestyle. Garmin serves five primary markets, including automotive,
aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor recreation. For more information,

Cabinet painting is a cost-effective way to modernize the kitchen and increase property value.

Business Wire

Reading Time: 2 minutes

CALGARY, Alberta–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kitchen renovations have one of the highest returns on investment compared to other home renovations. A modern, updated kitchen will add value to a property and make it more attractive to buyers. The largest financial component of a kitchen renovation is the cabinetry.

“Homeowners can experience huge savings on their kitchen renovation when they choose cabinet painting over a full cabinet replacement,” said Chris White of New Look Cabinets in Calgary. “Cabinet painting can make the kitchen look like new, at a fraction of the cost.”

The best advice is to hire Calgary cabinet painters for this project, but homeowners can attempt to DIY cabinet painting. Here are some instructions on how to paint kitchen cabinets.

  1. Choose paint: Choose a paint that will best adhere to your cabinet material and give lasting durability. You should also consider what paint colour will best suit your home’s overall design and your personal taste.
  2. Prepare the kitchen: Before starting, remove everything from the kitchen and cabinets that might get in the way.
  3. Remove cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and hardware: Take everything off the cabinet boxes and label it for easy reassembly.
  4. Clean and sand the surfaces: Wipe down all surfaces with a grease-removing cleaner. Then lightly sand all doors, drawer fronts and side panels. Remember to wipe off the dust afterwards.
  5. Prime and paint the cabinets: You can choose to paint them using a brush, compressor and paint gun, or have them painted by Calgary cabinet painters in a professional spray shop. Be sure to apply a primer and allow it to completely dry before putting on the top coat.

Homeowners should be aware that cabinet painting is a time consuming, detail-oriented job. If you are not comfortable with your ability, or you do not have enough time to complete the job properly, you should consider hiring professional cabinet painters.

“We have the experience, skills and equipment to get the job done efficiently and with seamless, professional results,” said White. “If you can’t commit the time, it is well worth the money to have your kitchen cabinets painted by a professional company.”

New Look Cabinets & Interiors is a RenovationFind Certified Painting Company in Calgary. They specialize in interior painting, as well as cabinet painting, cabinet refinishing and furniture refinishing. They offer superior workmanship, excellent customer service and are passionate about every project they work on.
