History

Gibco Kiosks was started by Gib Smith in Brooklyn, NY in 1992 to respond to a developing need for interactive terminals. Gib, who was experienced in the architectural woodworking and design business, was approached by Muze Inc to supply kiosks. Muze Inc had developed a digital data base of recorded music and wanted to make the database available to the public through terminals in record stores. (record stores!)

Gibco supplied an enclosure with a touch screen, a keyboard and an impact printer. These were among the first computer “kiosks” made. Gibco went on to make over three thousand kiosks for Muze.

Gibco Kiosks was member # 2 at KIOSKS.org. Kiosks.org has grown into the Digital Screen Media Association which is the leading trade membership group.

Gibco has increased its customer base considerably. Our clients include Federal and State governments, all branches of the US Military, Fortune 500 companies, retail and commercial enterprise, universities and libraries.

While offering aluminum and powder coated steel models we are still proud of our architectural craftsmanship in wood and laminates. In addition to the furniture quality, the choice of colors, textures and finishes is unsurpassed.

We are still in Brooklyn and all our enclosures are made in the USA.
