In 1947, William N. Lane and two partners founded General Binding Corporation (GBC) to meet the binding equipment needs of Chicago’s many printers. The company quickly took off and introduced the Combo comb binding machine in 1960 to make mechanical binding accessible to the masses. A few years later, in 1966, the tabletop laminator was introduced to make laminating more accessible as well. GBC continued to innovate and grow by launching a shredder business in 1973 and expanding into visual communication in 1996. Throughout the years, GBC has succeeded in improving binding and laminating to offer a variety of quick, easy and complete document finishing solutions to meet all business needs.
