Lamy is an independent family-owned enterprise which was
established in 1930 by C. Josef Lamy in Heidelberg.
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 LAMY 2000.
With an annual production of over 6 million writing instruments and a turnover exceeding €50 million, Lamy today is not only the
market leader in Germany but also ranks among the German design brands whose products hold a coveted position worldwide.
Design, quality and ‘Made in Germany’ are the pillars of the Lamy corporate strategy. These are underpinned
by the active Lamy corporate culture.
Customer-oriented: We focus on the needs of the customer.
Creative: We are prepared to create change and have the courage to try something new every day.
Co-operative: We act co-operatively, both internally and externally. We see ourselves as a high-performance community based on mutual trust and respect. Lamy products are self-contained and succinct. By tradition they embody the Bauhaus principle of functional design based on ‘form follows function’. This approach makes Lamy products unmistakable style icons and the name Lamy a quintessential brand.
