GBC – the General Binding Corporation – was founded in 1947 and has its headquarters in Chicago, USA. At the end of the 1940s, it started its first activities in Europe and has continually expanded these ever since. Today, GBC is an internationally active company and market leader in the field of laminating and binding. In 2005 the GBC and ACCO brands merged establisher the world's largest product provider in this field.
The GBC product range includes laminators with which customers can protect and embellish documents or certificates. The short warm-up and lamination times of these devices are very advantageous, as is the ease of handling due to the user-friendly design. GBC also supplies high quality lamination pouches in various sizes and designs that yield excellent results even with temperature-sensitive documents.
