Acco was (and is) very big in data center/office computer furniture as 
well.  I use a couple of Acco workstations that I picked up used about 
25 years ago.  Welded beefy things (had no problem holding a Daisy 20" 
monitor).  Desk is on a chain and threaded-rod up-down adjustment; 
keyboard shelf is adjustable WRT angle and height.   I don't think that 
I could ever go back to using a plain old office desk again.

Fortunately, I don't have to.
