With a prestigious business history dating back to the 1930s, the Lamy name has become synonymous with sophisticated, high-precision writing instruments prized by novelists, aristocrats and powerful men and women of our time. Established by Josef Lamy in the 1930s, the brand continues to have a strong presence not just in Germany but all over the world for pioneering fountain and cartridge fill pen production with the release of LAMY 2000, and earlier fountain pens such as the Lady and the Persona, guided by the Bauhaus ethos “form follows function.”
From its humble beginnings as a small fountain pen manufacturing facility in Heidelberg, Lamy has grown to producing six million high-quality functional writing instruments annually with distribution channels in over 65 countries across the globe. It continues to widen its reach with shops in East European countries such as Poland and Turkey as well as in Asia and South America. The luxury brand continues to innovate today, cementing its place as a leader in the design and manufacture of writing instruments that appeal to young and old consumers with a taste for modern, high-quality pens and do not mind showing their appreciation for the finer things in life. The brand takes pride in receiving the German Standards Brand Award in the ”Fountain Pens“ category and being noted as one of the 250 “Brands of the century – lighthouses in the sea of brands“ compendium.
