Office equipment

Sabb typewriter

Industrial Dattilografica of Milan, Italy had previously made such machines as the SABB / JUVENTA, in earlier corporate incarnations, prior to introduction of the EVEREST machines in 1931. Production ran through the Second World War and increased following. By the early 1960's, the firm was in a weakened position and was bought out by Olivetti, who ran down the supply of parts by completing machines until the parts were exhausted. Olivetti even assisted workers in finding new jobs, and later opened a facility of its own in Milan.
