Logo of Qume

Qume was a manufacturer of daisy-wheel printers originally located in Hayward, California, later moving to San Jose.[1][2] Around 1980, it also opened a manufacturing facility in Puerto Rico.[3] It once dominated the daisy-wheel market. [1] As the market for its printers declined in the 1980s, the company developed a line of computer terminals. It was founded by David S. Lee in 1973 and was a division of ITT Corporation from 1978 until its acquisition by Wyse Technology sometime before 1995.[4][5]
