G.E.A. has become a leading company in its core activity of Toll Collection Systems design and manufacture and maintenance since its creation in 1970.

Today, all French motorway companies use our equipment, ranking G.E.A. as their No.1 supplier. More than 85% of the French toll lanes on the motorways operate G.E.A. manufactured electronic toll systems and more than 10,000 G.E.A. lanes are in operation worldwide.

The range of G.E.A.'s products covers Automatic Ticket Machines for entry lanes in closed toll systems, Magnetic Card Machines for unmanned exit lanes, Manual Toll Terminals for Toll Collectors' use on exit lanes or on open toll systems. Even coin sorting mechanisms are now included into G.E.A.'s integrated lane equipment for the benefit of our most demanding customers.

G.E.A.'s expertise in Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) covers the full range of systems encountered across the world, thus enabling G.E.A. to undertake any sort of innovative project in electronic toll collection.

G.E.A. is a CEN TC278 ETC systems manufacturer since 2001 and a major player in the French-wide T.I.S. (Télépéage Inter-Sociétés) interoperable tolling scheme. G.E.A.’s range of ETC equipment includes CEN TC 278 compliant Road Side Beacons (for mono or multilane applications), On-Board Units and Desktop Reader Encoders.

Furthermore, G.E.A.'s software expertise is at the cutting edge of Information Technology. G.E.A. designed Plaza Computer Systems operate under Windows and use the most advanced and complex techniques of data communication: local operating networks at the lane and peripheral levels, Ethernet networks at the plaza level and high data rate numerical communication networks between toll plazas.

The numerous contracts won by G.E.A. overseas show its ability to adapt to operating conditions that are sometimes radically different from those of the French market. GEA has now installations in more than 33 countries:

In Europe (Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom)
In Asia (China, India, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand)

G.E.A. is also a renowned provider of turnkey parking revenue collection systems with solid references acquired from the major car park operators such as Vinci Park, Saemes, and a significant number of local authorities across France.

Customer satisfaction is our top priority: G.E.A. staff constantly endeavours to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of both our existing and potential clients. Whether or not a formal request for analysis has been received from a client, any new industry need is thoroughly investigated by our teams in order to find innovative solutions. The work is carried out in the pursuit of excellence and using total quality management processes.

G.E.A. was awarded its ISO 9001: 2000 certification on 26 March 1999.
