Golding & Company

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Golding & Company is a defunct American manufacturer of platen printing presses and printers' tools, established in 1869 by William Hughson Golding (1845–1916)[1] in the Fort Hill area of Boston, Massachusetts.[2]

Before 1895, Golding hired Henry Lewis Bullen to print its house organ, which increased sales of the Pearl.[2] In 1906, Golding's factories moved to Franklin, Massachusetts; its showrooms remained in Boston.[2]

William Golding died in 1916, but his two sons continued the enterprise.[2] In 1918, Golding was acquired by American Type Founders (ATF).[1] The Pearl continued to be made and sold by the Golding Press Division of ATF.[2] In 1927, Thomson National Company[3] (manufacturers of the Colt's Armory Press) bought Golding from ATF.[1]

In 1936, the Craftsmen Machinery Company, of Dedham, Massachusetts, somehow acquired jigs and patterns for the 7 x 11 Improved Pearl, selling it as the CMC Jobber until 1955.[2]
