  • About ADP Barcelona

    Have you considered Automatic Data Processing (ADP)? The company is an American provider of human resources located in regions throughout the world including Barcelona. The company provides human resources management software/services.

    ADP was one of four US companies that received an AAA credit rating from Moody’s and Standard & Poor (S&P). After the company spun off its dealer resources the two organizations downgraded the company to AA in 2014.The company has been operating for over half a century and was founded in 1949. Henry Taub founded the company Automatic Payrolls Inc. in 1949 with his brother Joe as a manual payroll processing business.

    Frank Lauenberg joined the company later in 1952. Lauenberg became the company’s CEO and Chairman in 1957. The company then changed its name to Automatic Data Processing (ADP) and started using mainframe computers, check printing machines, and punching card machines. ADP can also help your company with benefits administration. That includes issues including health care and others. ADP helps to lower the exposure to penalties that are compliance-related.

    ADP then went public in 1961. At that time it had 300 customers, over 100 employees, and revenue of about $400K per year. The company expanded in 1965 by launching a subsidiary in the UK. In 1974 it also bought an online computer services company named Time Sharing Limited (TSL). Lautenberg remained as CEO and Chairman until he was elected to the US Senate (D-NJ) in 1982.

    ADP continued to expand and the company’s revenues were over $1 billion per year from 1985 onwards. Not only that but the company processed paychecks for about one-fifth of the US workforce. Then during the 1990s, ADP started functioning as a professional employer organization (PEO). The company also acquired a German company named Autonom and a French payroll/human resources company named GSI.
