EarthGazer → ControlBase

Keeping it simple.

A change of name

We're excited to announce that from April 2018, we'll be known simply as ControlBase.

Founded in 2000, the company has steadily evolved, and the EarthGazer name has been complimented with new brand names throughout this time, including ControlBase and MakerBase.

Introduced in 2005, the ControlBase name has become synonymous with our high-tech design, automation and engineering work - so as we simplify our focus, mission and branding to mark the beginning of our 19th year, it made perfect sense that the focus of our business, is the name of our business.

Why the new name?

We've actually used the ControlBase marque for many machines, products and solutions we've developed since 2005. As we simplify our brand and mission - and with so many customers knowing the ControlBase name - it made perfect sense that the focus of our business, becomes the name of our business.

The EarthGazer name will not disappear altogether, but will remain behind the scenes as the name of our group. For the time being you'll still see EarthGazer on contracts, invoices and in some correspondence, but we'll be working toward making ControlBase a clear and distinct name over the next 12 months. If you have an existing trading partnership with us, we'll let you know in advance of any important legal changes.
