From FountainPen
Jump to: navigation, search

Fountain pens production became a major activity in the postwar period, with the production of both high-end and economic pens. In particular, the company was one of the first, indeed probably the first, to start in 1948 ballpoint pens manufacturing; the 1950 Retracto model is one of the first reversed point. The company also possessed a patent (nº US-2902978) from 1955 (awarded in 1959) for a cartridge with a metal ball inside that would facilitate the ink flow. Having established a good position in the new market, the company had a great success in the following years.
