 Giner Family

Dr. Jose Giner founded Giner Inc. in 1973. Jose is the second oldest of a family of 16 children and was born in Spain. After studying and working in Germany, he moved to the US with his family and held positions at United Technologies and at Tyco, before founding Giner.

In the 1980s Giner Inc. attracted a talented team of scientists and engineers led by Dr. Tony Laconti. This team brought particular expertise in Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) electrolysis, with intellectual roots going back to the Gemini space program.

In the 1990s Giner began a productive, long-term relationship with General Motors, and for a period there was a Joint Venture between Giner and GM to develop fuel cell and electrolyzer technologies for the automotive market. Giner continues to perform specialist research services for GM and other leading automakers.
