You can save nearly $200 if you buy a full case of eight of these industry-standard Cortelco touch-tone wall or desk phones. Although these phones are imported to the United States (like the vast majority of phones and other electronic products), they have the same five-year warranty as the phones that Cortelco makes in Mississippi.
Cortelco is the successor to the maker of ITT-brand phones and has a heritage of innovation and quality that goes back more than 100 years. We've been happily selling their phones since we started in business, back in 1977.
Cortelco can trace its roots back to the Kellogg Switchboard and Supply Company, which began in 1897 near Chicago. The company prospered as one of the pioneers in the mass production of telecommunications equipment.
In 1952, Kellogg became a division of the International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT) Corporation.
During the 1960s and '70s the business name of the company changed several times and its affiliation with other ITT manufacturing and sales organizations underwent various changes. These changes had very little impact on the day-to-day operations of the ITT factory.
-During the 80s the Corinth fatory was part of a joint-venture agreement between ITT and CGE, transferring the majority of ownership to the newly-formed Alcatel, N.V., the world's largest telecommunications manufacturer, based in France. Shortly after this merger, a new vision was set forth with a new company name (Cortelco) -- an acronym for Corinth Telecommunications Corporation.
In 1990 Alcatel sold Cortelco to former ITT executive David S. Lee. Cortelco reorganized and continued with the quality and innovation that its founding company began long before.
With such a prestigious lineage as Kellogg, ITT and Alcatel, Cortelco's telecommunications products are an evolution of quality and technology, characteristic of more than one hundred years' history.
