- Mark Landis is a Cornell graduate and Gen Mgr. & Chief Engineer for Landis Program Time Clocks.
1913: Company is now Landis Engineering and Manufacturing Co. 22 Ringgold St., Waynesboro, Pa.
- Products from this company’s early days still have Frick’s name on them until about 1923 when the Frick name disappears. The Landis Engineering and Manufacturing Co. catalog depicts a vast array of program time clocks and related products.
**I have a copy of this catalog if anyone needs to research or find a certain product.**
1923-1930: Mark Landis still listed as the Mgr. in the company catalogs.
Note: The Landis program time clock patent used a pinhole cylinder mechanism (1 min. time intervals) vs. Frick’s pinhole disk patent of 5 min. time intervals.
1932: Mumma is the new mgr. and owner but the clocks still retain the Landis name on the dial.
1937: The Landis Co. is sold to Cincinnati Time Recorder Co.
