Description: Gateway, Inc. was a company that used to be engaged in the development and manufacture of computer hardware. It was headquartered in California, U.S.A. The company was established by Mike Hammond and Ted Waitt in September 5, 1985. Gateway had also been involved in marketing and supporting personal computers and other products that are computer-related.
The company had originally been called Gateway 2000. In the beginning, it dealt with the direct marketing of personal computers that were modeled after those of Dell. Then in 1989, the operations of the company were moved to North Sioux City, South Dakota. It also launched the opening of several retail stores in suburban areas across the United Kingdom. The company even has its own mascot, the Holstein cow. The retail stores of the company are called Gateway Country.
It was in 1997 that Gateway bought the assets of Amiga which is a product line that included personal computers that had been prominent in the 80s. In October of 1998, Gateway officially dropped the “2000” from the company name. In that same year, the company moved its office to San Diego, California. It did not stay there for very long because it again moved to Poway in the same state. Gateway purchased eMachines in 2004. eMachines is a budget PC manufacturer that was based on Irvine, California where Gateway again relocated.
The products of Gateway became hugely popular in the early 90s when they began shipping the company’s computer hardware in white boxes that had black spots on them like those seen on cows. The company had also employed the same strategy for Gateway’s advertisements in magazines.
The propaganda proved to be very successful because since then, Gateway became a regular on the listing of Fortune Magazine’s 500 largest companies in the world. It was in October of 1999 that AOL or America Online purchased gateway.net, the online component of the company, for US$800 million. However, by 2006, Gateway was dropped from the annual list of Fortune 500 companies.
By September of the following year, the company announced that it was selling Gateway’s business segment to a U.S.-based computer company, the MPC Corporation. MPC has been a recognized supplier of computers for the specialists in the educational, business, government and local fields.
Acer, Inc., a large, Taiwan-based computer company bought Gateway on October of 2007 for US$710 million. Upon the completion of the acquisition, all the Gateway Country stores were closed and the company’s products could only be purchased from online sites and retail stores.
