It all began in 1919, when three individuals, Ed Lemker, George Maier, and Otto Busch, united by a shared dedication to delivering high-quality work and superior service, laid the foundation for our company.

Carrying forward this legacy, in 1950, Dick Olberding (Ed Lemker’s nephew) joined Phototype as an apprentice cameraman and salesman, marking the beginning of a new chapter. Dick’s sons, David (our CEO) and Steve (our Chairman of the Board) joined their dad at Phototype in the 1980s. Their children, the 4th generation, have also joined the company, and are actively continuing the tradition.

As we step into a new era of service, we honor our heritage of excellence by rebranding as Olberding Brand Family. This new identity reflects our comprehensive range of interconnected services. We invite you to learn more about us and how we can partner with you.
