Lexmark is an American manufacturer of printers, scanners and related computer peripherals that was formed in 1991 as a divestiture of IBM's Office Products Division. Amongst the products originally manufactured by Lexmark were IBM's typewriters and keyboards. Lexmark produced Model M keyboards for IBM under a five year license. By the time this license ran out in 1996, neither IBM nor Lexmark were interested in producing/buying Lexmark's Model M keyboards, and so the employees who produced the keyboards bought out the machinery and production rights and formed Unicomp.
