About GBC

We’re there when a teacher is juggling a million tasks. When an office associate is hustling to assemble presentation booklets. When a printing business is up against multiple deadlines. We’re there because, in those moments, people need their equipment and supplies to work fast, the first time. At GBC, that’s our number one goal—to be the most reliable, efficient brand in the classroom, office, production room or other place of business. 

Our Legacy  

The GBC (General Binding Corporation) story began in 1947. That’s 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, then the tabletop laminator in 1966. After merging with ACCO Brands in 2005, GBC became part of the world’s largest supplier of branded office products.  

We make solutions for the place your business is today—and more importantly, where it’s going tomorrow.
