Our Legacy 

General Binding Corporation didn’t get to be a leader in the document finishing industry without earning our customers’ trust. Our roots go back to 1947 when our founder William N. Lane and two business partners helped Chicago printers find a faster, more reliable way to bind and laminate. GBC introduced the first electric, desktop mechanical binding punch in 1961 and the tabletop laminator in 1966. After merging with ACCO Brands in 2005, we become part of the world’s largest supplier of branded office products. 

We empower professional printers, educators and corporations to finish their printed materials on time, with polish and at the highest quality. We produce binding machines and supplies, laminating machines and supplies, shredders and document cameras for wherever your business has been—and more importantly—where it’s going. When you see the GBC logo, know that it stands for superior results.
