Family-owned Anderson Business Technology opened in 1912 as Anderson Typewriter, and in its century of business, it’s had several locations in Old Pasadena. An early advertising slogan was "We sell and service anything that writes," and indeed, the company credits its longevity with its ability to adapt with the times, moving first from manual to electric typewriters and then to computer-based communications.
Today, Anderson offers an array of digital-connected office equipment, as well as stand-alone copiers, fax, printers, shredders, dictation equipment, and calculators. Services include consultation, purchase/lease/rental options, free installation, customized training, and on-going product support.
Bickley Printing Co. is a longtime Old Pasadena business, providing commercial and publication printers, as well as digitized computer typesetting.
