It was in 1662 when Friedrich Staedtler came up with his idea of manufacturing both leads and the body for pencils. In doing so, he abolished the separation between the production of the lead by the lead cutters, and the production of the lead‘s wooden encasement by the carpenters.
Today STAEDTLER is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of writing, painting, drawing and modelling products. We create ideas that make our products more sustainable, efficient and durable. In this way, we want to help people around the world realise and share their ideas.
