Univac at General Electric (Appliance Park)
Offering the unique advantage of electronic speed coupled with unrivalled accuracy, it’s no wonder that the General Electric Company installed the Remington Rand Univac at their modern Appliance Park, in Louisville, Kentucky.
Univac makes possible new insight into all phases of G-E’s major appliance operations. Management decisions can be made with a degree of precision never before obtainable.
BUSINESS NEEDS ALL FOUR
ONLY REMINGTON OFFERS ALL FOUR
Your Remington Rand representative is best qualified to fulfill the typing needs of the modern office because only he can offer all four typewriters essential to business.
He can impartially study your requirements and recommend exactly the typewriter that will contribute the most to typing efficiency in your own particular organization.

Operation Thinking Cap
It takes more than a slide rule alone, these days, to perform the computations necessary for scientific problems such as those encountered in atmospheric research. The scientist of today, equipped with modern data-gathering devices, is faced with a stupendous data-reduction task which requires extremely high speed computation. That’s why the Univac Scientific electronic computing system (formerly known as the ERA 1103) has proven to be invaluable to scientists and engineers alike.
I thought I’d post these two ads together. Here is a Remington Rand computer ad from 1955 and below is a Remington typewriter ad from 1902.
What’s New in Mnemonics?
The news is that the magnetic-core memory has emerged from the computer laboratory and has been in customer use for approximately a year, passing all tests with flying colors. This new development has been pioneered by Remington Rand with the Univac Scientificâ€”the first installation of a commercially available computer that successfully uses magnetic-core storage.
Doubling Univac’s Speed!
The famous Univac of Remington Rand has widened even further its lead over other electronic business computing systems. Univac is still the only completely self-checked system… the only one which can read, write, and compute simultaneously without extra equipment. And now, the Univac II adds to these superior features the speed of a magnetic-core memory.
Perfecting Tomorrow’s Turbines
Many complex and intricate computations are required to evaluate test cell runs … to design turbines with ever-increasing efficiency of performance. Univac Scientific is the ideal electronic computing system for the task. It can easily accomplish these feats of mathematics â€” and solve the many problems encountered in data reduction, compressor off-design, turbine off-design, wheel design and analysis, and engine performance.
Designed for Science
In many ways the E. R. A. 1103 is the most advanced data-handling system yet devised. By tremendous speed, large storage capacity, and great programming versatility, the system assures ideal handling of the most intricate computations.
Adding to its very high speed is an exceptionally fast memory-reference system which keeps the system’s 17,408 internal storage registers directly accessible. Computing time is reduced still further â€” as is programming time â€” by use of a simplified form of two-address logic.
sensational new “fact-power” unleashed by Remington Rand UNIVAC
Yesterday, “impossible”… today, an accomplished fact â€”
Now, for the first time, a commercial or industrial firm can have â€” first thing any morning â€” complete facts and figures, analyzed and summarized, on its previous day’s performance … in production, in sales, in procurement or any other major or minor activity.
The almost unbelievable feats of Remington Rand Univac in computing, sorting, classifying and reporting business data enable management executives to formulate “fact-powered” decisions in the merest fraction of the time previously required. Also, highly pertinent analyses and forecasts that were never even attempted before, are now easy and almost completely automatic. Univac has cleared the way for phenomenal improvements
in the coordination of business facilities.
