In May 1990, shortly after the democratic changes in Hungary, 12 software engineers working in the West at the time decided to found their own human resources leasing company, Gamax Ltd. Managing director of the new company, Dr. Géza Homonnay already had some experience in this area.

In 1992-93, the range of activities of the young company expanded. While the main activity continued to be the leasing of IT personnel, the company also started selling hardware and software in Hungary. Since 1993, a separate company, GAMAXNET Kft. was formed to carry out this activity, specializing in wide-area network (WAN) infrastructure services for data communications.

In 1993, the company was selected to provide software localization services for Microsoft. In 1994, we were one of only four companies in Eastern Europe that received the prestigious “Microsoft Strategic Localization Partner” award. The company has localized software and related documentation for many multinationals, e.g. Digital, HP, IBM, Lexmark, Lotus, Motorola, Nokia, Novell, Oracle, Xerox etc. Apart from Hungarian, we localize and translate into the other Eastern European languages as well.

In 1997, we established several Internet-related departments. At first, we specialized in building websites, then a complete design and graphics team was set up to provide high quality services in the area of web based software development. In 2002, this department was spun off into a separate company, Instantweb Kft..
