Time clocks for recording employee working hours were made by the International Time Recording Company starting in 1900. In 1911 it merged with the Computing Scale Company, which made retail weighing scales, and Herman Hollerith’s Tabulating Machine Company, which made punched card equipment. The merged company was renamed the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) by company president Thomas J. Watson, Sr. in 1924.
