American Type Founders

Entstanden durch Zusammenlegung von 23 Firmen im Jahr 1892. Eine zeitlang arbeiten die Firmen noch unter ihren eigenen Namen. 1895 erscheint der erste Katalog unter dem Namen ATF. 1903 wird eine zentrale Produktionssttte in Jersey City, NJ errichtet. In den 30er Jahren geht die Firma in Konkurs, kann aber weiterarbeiten. 1959 wird sie von den Whitin Machine Works gekauft. In dieser Zeit wird auch eine Fotosetzmaschine entwickelt. In den 80er Jahre wird sie von der Firma Kingsley erworben und firmiert danach Kingsley-ATF. 1993 wird die Gieerei liquidiert und ein Teil der Matern auf einer Auktion versteigert.
