dbpedia-owl:abstract
  • The Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company (CTR) was incorporated by Charles R. Flint on June 16, 1911, as the merger of four companies. It was initially located in Endicott, New York a few miles west of Binghamton. CTR was renamed International Business Machines in 1924.Since the 1960s or earlier, IBM has described its formation as a merger of three companies: the Tabulating Machine Company (1880s origin in Washington, DC), the International Time Recording Company (ITR; 1900, Endicott), and the Computing Scale Company of America (1901, Dayton, Ohio). However the 1911 CTR stock prospectus states that four companies were merged; the three described by IBM plus the Bundy Manufacturing Company. In 1900, ITR acquired Bundy's time recording business, but Bundy remained in business, producing 1905 Bundy Adding Machine and others.The companies that merged to form the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company manufactured a wide range of products, including employee time-keeping systems, weighing scales, automatic meat slicers and, most importantly for the development of computers, punched card equipment. CTR was a holding company: the individual companies continued to operate using their established names until the businesses were integrated in 1933 and the holding company eliminated.
