A Real Old-Timer

As regular readers here know, we recently celebrated Acroprint’s 44th anniversary. In honor of the occasion, one of our valued resellers, Ty from Raleigh Time Recorder Company, sent us this:

Vintage Acroprint 125AR3 Time Recorder

“Hardy Arthree” there is a vintage Model 125AR3 time recorder — the name plate and serial number indicate it was only the 362nd clock the company ever made. Forty-four years of service and it’s still on the job, accurately recording employee work hours at a company right here in Raleigh.

Wow! You know, I knew our clocks were durable, but this is even more than I expected to see!

Here’s an excerpt of what “Hardy” had to say:

It has been a long time since I was home. But, I am delighted to report that I have been on the job faithfully these last 44 years. Yes sir! Doing what I was made to do! …the fine folks at Raleigh Time Recorder Company have looked after me real good. Well, I’m getting a little winded, so I had better wrap this up. Just remember what ol’ Arthree says: “Keep your gears lubed and your ribbons tight, and you are going to be all right!”

Words to live by, for sure.
