The Lamy enterprise was established in 1930 by C. Josef Lamy in Heidelberg and Lamy pens are still brought to you by the original family-run company which has remained young and independent even though it has a long tradition. The LAMY brand has existed since 1952 and proved its innovative prowess in the very first year with the completely novel LAMY 27 fountain pen series. And in 1966 the distinctive style of Lamy Design was born with the LAMY 2000. With its annual production of 7.5 million writing instruments and a turnover of 55 million Euros, Lamy is not only the market leader in Germany but has also become one of the main brands of writing instruments in the world. Its products have a special position world wide.
