Pitney Bowes has been an innovator and solution provider since its inception. The roots trace back to 1902.
It was then that Arthur Pitney patented the “double locking” hand-cranked postage-stamping machine, a first of its kind. Eventually, Pitney would merge with Walter Bowes. Bowes had an existing relationship with the United States Postal Service. The USPS was using his canceling machines.
The partnership provided an opportunity for the two men to combine their efforts and deliver a device that could do both postal stamping and canceling. Due to the new law passed in 1920 requiring meter postage, there was now a need for such a product.
By 1950, Pitney Bowes was public on the New York Stock Exchange, and in 1968, they produced the first barcode for retail. During the 1970s 1980s and 1990s, Pitney Bowes was an innovator with copy machines fax machines and even developed the first ink jet postage meter.
Starting in 2000 Pitney Bowes began moving into software solutions.
To date, they have put $2.5 billion into this area of expansion. Unbeknownst to most people, Pitney Bowes has continued to be a leader in technology.
