Garmin® growth continues to accelerate as the company celebrates 200 million products sold and opens its Olathe campus expansion

Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN) today announced that it has sold more than 200
million of its GPS navigation and wearable technology products to
customers around the world pursuing their passions throughout the
automotive, aviation, fitness, marine, and outdoor markets Garmin
serves. This milestone is concurrent with the opening of the first phase
of the company’s facility expansion at its North American headquarters
in Olathe, Kansas. Built to enable growth in many areas of its business,
this 750,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution center more than
doubles the company’s aviation product manufacturing and distribution
capacity. These exciting achievements reinforce Garmin’s continued
commitment to its customers, associates, shareholders and community.

“All over the world, one product at a time, we help our customers beat
yesterday with products that fuel their passions,” said Cliff Pemble,
Garmin president and CEO. “Just six years ago, Garmin sold its 100millionth
product. Today, we’ve doubled that number and have significantly
expanded our business to become a leader in all markets we serve,
including wearable technology which has been a source of remarkable
growth in recent years. As we celebrate these tremendous milestones, we
thank our customers and associates who made these achievements possible,
and look forward to many more milestones to come.”

Founded in 1989 by a small group of engineers passionate about creating
GPS applications for active lifestyles, Garmin now employs more than
12,000 associates in over 30 countries. Now that the first phase of the
Olathe campus expansion – the expanded manufacturing facility – is open
and operating, the move of the company’s distribution center will begin
early next year. Following the move of the distribution center, the
second phase of renovating the existing Garmin warehouse and
