AlphaType Corporation, a family-owned company, was founded by Al and Beatrice Friedman in the mid-1960s to make high quality but inexpensive phototypesetters for advertising typographers. The library contained a handful of original designs, largely by Vladimir Andrevich. In 1981 Berthold acquired AlphaType.
