Gestetner History

The History of Gestetner

In the late 19th century, when people were laboriously transcribing documents by hand, David Gestetner created the first stencil duplicator, which enabled in-house, multi-copy document reproduction for the first time. And thus began Gestetner’s long history as an innovator in the office equipment industry.

Since that time, the company has been at the forefront at every stage in the evolution of document management equipment.

Gestetner’s status as one of the world’s leading duplicator providers continues to this day. Marketed as a CopyPrinter and now incorporating cutting-edge digital technology, the digital duplicator combines the sophistication of a scanner, the simplicity of a copier, and the cost advantages of high-speed commercial duplicating.

Gestetner’s latest CopyPrinter, offering revolutionary 600-dpi image resolution, spot color, and connectivity options, is just one example of the company’s superior duplicator products. As a premier digital duplicator provider, Gestetner focuses on customers in educational institutions, and religious, corporate, and non-profit organizations, helping them develop better, cost-effective ways to produce and distribute their communications.

Gestetner markets a full line of office equipment including color and black & white digital multifunction products, digital duplicators, color and black & white network laser printers, facsimilie products and wide format products. Additionally, Gestetner offers a wide variety of document and printing solutions that enhance office productivity and document workflow.

Gestetner’s success as a provider of document management solutions stems from the company’s focus on complete customer satisfaction. The company strives to enhance its customers’ productivity by providing the best document processing equipment, supplies, accessories, and services.
