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.

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.
