About Durabook Americas

Durabook Americas (formerly GammaTech Computer Corp.) is a leading manufacturer of rugged computing solutions, including the DURABOOK line of notebooks, tablets and all-in-one computers.


The DURABOOK brand is designed, manufactured and tested in-house to assure maximum quality and reliability. These purpose-built, cost-effective ruggedized laptops, tablets, and all-in-one PCs are high-performance solutions that increase productivity, drive a clear return on investment and deliver a low total cost of ownership.


Rugged DURABOOK devices have a loyal customer base around the globe, including most branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, public safety agencies, numerous field service organizations, as well as companies in oil & gas, logistics, healthcare, utilities and automotive markets.


As GammaTech, the company distributed its line of laptop computers from the late 1980s into the new millennium, at which point shifts in the market required it to forge a new path. Due to increasing commoditization in the PC industry, the company adjusted its business model to focus on industrial and application-specific systems like those used by the military, public safety, oil & gas and field service organizations. This move allowed it to leverage its expertise in designing, manufacturing and supporting mobility solutions, in a more differentiated and less crowded market.


In 2000, the company manufactured its first military-grade rugged notebook, followed by the introduction of the DURABOOK brand in 2002. The DURABOOK line quickly expanded to meet the demands of customers in a broad range of markets that require rugged mobility solutions.


In Feb. 2018, with DURABOOK the primary focus of its business for over a decade, GammaTech changed its name to Durabook Americas. The name reflects the company’s longstanding focus on the DURABOOK brand as well as changing market conditions that emphasize the need for reliable, purpose-built, mobile computing solutions.


Durabook Americas, headquartered in Fremont, California, is the North American subsidiary of Twinhead International Corporation.
