Tobias Associates, Inc., is a progressive family-owned manufacturer of innovative graphic arts equipment. In addition to the printing industry, Tobias also serves the photographic, micrographic, radiographic, pulp and paper, and electronic publishing industries. The company was founded by Philip E. Tobias in Glenside, Pennsylvania in 1959, as a graphic arts consulting business. Educated as an engineer, Mr. Tobias' graphic arts expertise was acquired during the ten years that he served as Director of Research and Development for a Philadelphia based printer. It was at that time that he became recognized as a technical authority in the field. In 1960, with the consulting business a success, the manufacturing operation was established, its product line geared toward the continuing improvement and consistency of print quality.
