Company Information | The History of DeLuxe Stitcher
In 1886 in the town of Arilington, Massachusetts, Thomas Briggs designed a completely new way of binding books together with wire using what later became known as the wire stitcher. Thomas Briggs' company eventually became known as the Boston Wire Stitcher Company.
Over the years, the Boston Wire Stitcher Company solidified its position within the industry and would later be known to millions of people around the globe as Bostitch. it was under the Bostitch name that wire stitching became very popular and touched so many print finishers around the world. To many people, the name Bostitch is synonymous with wire stitching.
