1955 Sperry merged with Remington Rand to form Sperry Rand, which became the world's 2nd largest computer manufacturer.

1979 With the planned divestment of Sperry's electric shaver and office products operations, Sperry Rand Corporation changed its name to Sperry Corporation to streamline the corporate identity.

1984 Divested Sperry Vickers to focus on designing and producing high technology, electronics-based systems and products for commercial business, government, defence, aerospace and maritime markets.
