History

ADP was founded in 1949 by Henry Taub in Paterson, New Jersey as Automatic Payrolls, Inc. The first ADP office, above Grinker’s Ice Cream shop, processed payroll manually with a bookkeeping machine, addressograph equipment, calculators and comptometers. The company's first full-time salesman was future U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg. [ [http://www.investquest.com/iq/a/adp/main/archives/anniversary.htm# ADP Investor Relations--50 Year History, 1949-1999] ] The company’s first account was New Era Dye and Finishing in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. With the introduction of punch card machines, mainframe computers and check printing machines, Automatic Payrolls became Automatic Data Processing in 1958.

ADP became a public company in 1961, with an initial stock price of $3. In the next year, Brokerage Services division was developed to serve the high volume transaction needs of major stock brokerages on Wall Street. The company proceeded to offer Dealer Services to automotive dealers to handle inventory and accounting transactions. In 1974, ADP extended into the international market with an office in The Netherlands,and London and later in the decade added Claims Services.
