Long before Johann Sebastian founded his own pencil manufacturing plant on 3rd October 1835, one of his ancestors, Friedrich Staedtler, had already been active in the pencil-making trade with records of him in Nuremberg's city annals dating as far back as 1662. He was able to transfer the experience and expertise he had gathered in the traditional craft of pencil making in the workshop of his father Paulus Staedtler to the new, industrial factory - officially recognised and certified by Nuremberg’s city council. Nowadays, around 2.500 people work for Europe's largest manufacturer of blacklead and coloured pencils. As to be expected in today’s environment of globalisation, the company has since established international subsidiaries around the world and production plants on all continents but, nevertheless, it is in Nuremberg, the home town of its founder, that the heart of the company still very much beats.
