Burroughs

Designed by Albert Kahn in 1938, this is home of Burroughs Inc (at one time Burroughs Adding Machine Co.) For several years, Burroughs was consider a major manufacturer of business equipment. Later, Burroughs was selling more than adding machines, including typewriters. But the biggest shift in company history came in 1953: the Burroughs Adding Machine Company was renamed the Burroughs Corporation and began moving into computer products, initially for banking institutions.This company has been around for over 100 years and has played a role in both Plymouth & World history. Many of their early products are on display at the Plymouth Historical Museum.
