About Us

In early 2008, 26 maintenance professionals from major companies in the Arabian Gulf identified the need for an entity to represent maintenance and reliability professionals from different industries in the region. They came together and founded Gulf Society of Maintenance Professionals (GSMP), which later transformed into Gulf Society for Maintenance & Reliability (GSMR).
