Company History

Lincoln Coders Corporation (formerly Lincoln Logotype)

Incorporated in 1957 by Millard B. Beaver in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Lincoln specializes in manufacturing 58 models of carton coders and marking devices for many industries.

With a penchant for giving customers immediate and accurate service, Mr. Beaver manufactured his patented T-Flex® rubber type strictly for breweries to print date codes on labeling equipment. His market quickly expanded into many facets of the food and beverage industry.

In the early 1960’s, seeing a need for a simple, dependable carton marker, he developed and patented his T-Flex carton coder. This device, without many significant changes, is still very popular today.

The company has since developed many different and unique printing devices for it’s customers over the years, but never lost sight of Mr. Beaver’s ultimate goal: To give the customer value, prompt service and quality equipment.
