About Gerber Scientific Inc.

Gerber Scientific Products was founded in January 1980 as a subsidiary of Gerber Scientific, Inc. The company was chartered to expand the corporations' product offerings by entering new markets. Much of the company's early work involved research and development of OEM products to be marketed by other companies. In early 1981, the concept of an automated lettering system was born at Gerber. After nearly two years of extensive market research and engineering R&D, concept became reality and the Signmaker III was publicly introduced to the market November 1982. Since then, Gerber has carefully studied our customers' needs and combined our creative minds, innovative engineering, and outstanding workmanship to develop and produce a complete range of products for the sign, graphics, and screenprint industries. In retrospect, the Signmaker III started a revolution in the way the world creates signs and other related visual media today.
