GEBE Through The Years 45th Anniversary
When does a company come of age? When it becomes 15 years old, 25, or 45? Any company that has lasted 45 years deserves our unstinted recognition and praise, but the actual coming of age party is when it has demonstrated that it has met its goal of reliable, affordable and quality service that its customers demand of it. At 45, GEBE can proudly say that it has accomplished such lofty objectives. But the road was not easy.GEBE Through the Years is the story of St. Martin’s electricity and water company in the last 45 years. It could be said that the company has become a barometer of how the St. Martin society is making progress—particularly in the South where the company is based and generally for the entire island. If there is trouble at GEBE, it is reflected in the community at large. If there is peace at GEBE, it seeps through the whole island. If there is expansion at GEBE, St. Martin’s economy mirrors it. That is why GEBE Through The Years is, in a very special way, the story of the development of the island in the last 45 years. As a birthday “present,” the chief celebrants of this documentary are the management and workers of GEBE and the people of St. Martin. It is a success story, a story of triumph against all odds, it is a documentation of the victorious and indomitable spirit of the St. Martin people found from top to bottom at GEBE.
