Griffin Technology is a wholly owned subsidiary of Diebold.[1] Griffin Technology was originally incorporated in New York in 1982.[2] Griffin made and leased microcomputer systems for college and university cafeteria systems. Griffin also supplied the student identification cards, which gave students access to dining halls and could be used to debit food purchases through their meal accounts.[3] In October 1995 Diebold made an offer to acquire Griffin[4] that was eventually accepted by Griffin shareholders the following month.[5]
