175 years of Pelikan

Pelikan, a company of long-standing tradition, has been making history for 175 years now. On 28 April 1838, with the release of the first price list for his paint factory, the chemist Carl Hornemann laid the foundation for the success of this world renowned traditional company from Hanover, Germany

Under the motto “175 Years of Pelikan", the 2013 anniversary is accompanied by numerous activities for business and final customers alike. A special highlight is the limited edition M101N Jubilee Pen. Only 238 of these noble fountain pens will be available worldwide.

For everyone who would like to have a closer look at the success story of Pelikan: Our interactive company history, as well as the book on brand history, provide a full overview of the past 175 years of Pelikan.
