Friden 1116 Advertisement
Nation's Business Magazine, March, 1971
This is an advertisement for the Friden 1116 calculator, a machine marketed by the Friden division of Singer Company that was designed and manufactured in Japan by Hitachi. The 1116 was marketed by Friden under an agreement with Hitachi whereby Hitachi would provide calculators that it designed and manufactured in Japan, with cabinetry and color schemes specified by Singer, and Singer would sell the machine under its Friden brand in its markets world-wide. The Hitachi version of the 1116 was sold by Hitachi in Japan as the ELCA-26. The Friden 1116 was introduced in the US in August of 1970.
