1911-IBM Founded

International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) is founded as a result of a merger of several companies that manufactured the computer scale, the dial recorder, the Electronic Tabulating Machine, and the clock that punched employees time sheets. Charles Flint, a noted trust organizer, engineers the consolidation of four companies: the Tabulating Machine Company, the International Time Recording Company, the Computing Scale Company of America, and the Bundy Manufacturing Company. The consolidated companies manufacture and sell, or lease, machinery ranging from commercial scales and industrial time recorders to meat and cheese slicers, along with tabulators and punched cards.
