Friden 130 Ad Touting Productivity Improvements in Gimbel's Department Store's Accounts Payable Dept.

This advertisement speaks of a marked improvement in Accounts Payable productivity as a result of replacing Friden SBT electro-mechanical calculators with the Friden 130. Gimbel's Department Store initially replaced six Friden SBT calculators with five EC-130's, and made a huge productivity increase. Later, additional EC-130's were purchased for Accounts Payable, as well as one for the department store's statistics department. This ad was published on the rear cover of the January, 1966 Friden News company magazine.
