Welcome to Albany Typewriter Exchange (ATex)!
Our company began in the year 1936. Albany Typewriter Exchange began selling and servicing typewriters and Victor calculators. Cecil Gibbs started working there when he was only 15 years old. He had to ride his bicycle to work and the city bus to pick up and deliver typewriters.
That was just a few years before WWII began, and when the war was over, things began to change. As offices grew the company expanded to offer office supplies and equipment as well as office furniture. Cecil never retired from ATex, working there until he was 87 years old.
Cecil's son Lester joined the company at an early age, too. Lester continues to keep up with today's technology. Our focus now is on Point of Sale (POS) Software and Equipment. Specializing in Grocery and Restaurant Solutions. We also offer Retail Scales for Market, Produce and Deli for the grocery industry. We stock all types of thermal and non-thermal receipt paper, also single dual colored ink ribbons for a wide range of POS equipment. We also stock labels for scales and can ship them to your door.
