Dolbey and Company, Inc., which began as a partner and dealer for Thomas A. Edison’s dictation machine company, proudly announces the anniversary of its 100th year in business.
In 1914, John Dolbey and Thomas A. Edison shook hands on a dictation machine franchise, and ever since, Dolbey has been a leader in dictation and document management systems. Jerry Dolbey, President & CEO of Dolbey and Company, Inc. states, “Over the past 100 years, technology and our customers’ needs have changed, and the pace of that change continues to accelerate. We strive to anticipate these rapid changes and, though the products we develop today differ dramatically from those we offered originally, we have always held true to our goal of delivering the best, most technologically superior products and service to our customers.”
