A Pasadena garage was the first home of the National Postal Meter Company, founded by Arnold Beckman in 1934. The company soon became National Technical Laboratories, with a focus on pH meters. In 1935, the company moved into a larger building (on East Colorado Boulevard, near the original garage), and in 1940 relocated the headquarters to a 14,000 square foot building on Mission Street. A 27,000 square foot plant was built in 1946. In 1950, the company's name was changed to Beckman Instruments, Inc.
