Company Profile

In 1903, Fred J. Kline founded the Clipper Manufacturing Company in Long Island, New York. In 1910, the company became the American Clip Company and first used the acronym ACCO. By 2012, ACCO Brands became a global leader, completing an $860 million merger with MeadWestvaco’s Consumer and Office Products. The transaction brought brands like Mead, Five Star, Trapper Keeper, AT-A-GLANCE, Cambridge, Day Runner, HilroyTilibra and Grafons to ACCO Brands' product line. In 2017, ACCO successfully added Esselte Group Holdings to its acquisitions.
