Established in Charlestown, Massachusetts Boston Gear was
founded by none other than the man who invented the
calculator - George Grant. Grant headed the business from
1877 to 1891, when it was sold to Frank Burgess, a
businessman with one overriding goal: to provide accuracy,
economy, and despatch, or, in today’s marketing vernacular,
quality, price, and service - and indeed, those are the
hallmarks upon which Boston Gear was built.
