A Little Bit of History
In 1921 Listo Pencil Company was founded in Alameda, CA by Charles Wehn. Charles was an early adopter of plastics as an industrial material expert. He designed and built some of the earliest mechanical writing instruments in the industry, the mechanical grease pencil making Listo the thriving company that it is today.
Almost 100 years later with, 4th generation, Rick Stuart's dedicated leadership Listo Pencil continues to grow on the little island of Alameda, located in the beautiful California Bay Area. Keeping his great grandfather's values alive, Listo mechanical pencils are locally hand assembled & packed using componants manufactured in the USA.
