The internationally active group of companies was founded 242 years ago (1761) in Stein b. Nuremberg as a pencil factory. As one of the oldest industrial companies in the world, FABER-CASTELL is still in the same family hands after eight generations.
FABER-CASTELL is one of the world's leading manufacturers and marketers of high-quality products for writing, colouring and creative design - the brand name has a global reputation. In the core area of wood-cased pencils, the FABER-CASTELL Group is the most important manufacturer in the world with more than 1.8 billion lead and coloured pencils per year. The production of coloured pencils dominates. Figuratively speaking, the pencils - laid in a row - make a distance from the earth to the moon or eight times around the earth!
Highlighters are produced in many bright colours at the factory in Engelhartszell.
Here is a great promotional film from Faber-Castell:
FABER-CASTELL employs around 5,500 people worldwide in 15 production facilities and 18 sales companies. Of these, around 2,800 work for the Brazilian FABER-CASTELL company in Sao Carlos/Sao Paulo (including 500 employees in the reforestation project in the Prata region / state of Minas Gerais). FABER-CASTELL Brazil is the largest coloured pencil factory in the world, producing 1.5 billion pencils per year. Internationalisation began as early as 1849 with the founding of the first foreign branch in New York. This was followed by further sales companies and factories in what are now 19 countries around the globe. Thanks to these early worldwide activities in production and marketing, FABER-CASTELL sees itself as an international group of companies with German roots. Under the umbrella of A.W. Faber-Castell Unternehmensverwaltung GmbH & Co, the activities of the FABER-CASTELL Group are organised into the following divisions:
Industry: FABER-CASTELL AG is the holding company for all companies involved in the manufacture and marketing of products for writing, painting, drawing and design as well as for decorative cosmetics. The global business is coordinated according to the marketing regions: Europe / North America Latin America Asia / Pacific
Services: FABER-CASTELL CONSULTING is a consulting company for data processing, organisation and business management.
Real estate: The company FABER-CASTELL PROJETOS IMOBILIARIOS in Brazil was founded in 1994 for the purpose of carrying out extensive urbanisation measures in the Sao Carlos area (Sao Paulo).
