At Lion Pencil, we commit to: INNOVATIONS, CONTINUOUS REFORMS, & CUSTOMER’S SATISFACTION.
Lion Pencil Co., Ltd. is a leading stationery and art material manufacturer in Taiwan. As part of the post-war Taiwan economic legend, we have been dedicated for more than six decades to the sales and development of writing instruments, art products, and fancy stationery.
Established in 1956, Lion Pencil Co., Ltd. originally provided local Taiwanese market with pencils. Under the leadership of the first 2 presidents, Lion has expanded into the international market and has introduced different types of products.
In year 2000, Lion Pencil installs a new factory of 26,000 square meters in Jiangsu Province, China. With the operation of this new plant, Lion Pencil wishes to better fulfill our customer needs.
To meet new compliance regulations and to modernize our production facilities, in 2019, we opened a new factory of about 10,000 square meters in Longtan District, Taoyuan City. The new factory is equipped with state-of-the-art machines for writing instrument manufacture and can accommodate the demands for volume orders and quality, environmental, and safety standards by local and international customers.
Furthermore, within the Longtan site, an art-advocating institute, Simbalion Art Studio was set up in 2020. At the Art Studio, with interactive exhibits and hands-on painting activities, visitors of all ages can understand how the stationery they use is made, learn and experience colorful beauties of fine arts, and get their artistic imaginations inspired without a limit.
With the efforts of over 6 decades by our management and professional teamwork, Lion Pencil is now the top-ranking stationery and art material manufacturer in Taiwan. And this success comes under one of our core values: freeing the creativities of people, making people create with joys, and never stopping to bring more and more fun and wonderful artistic experiences to people. And this is a mission we shall proudly continue for consumers of the whole world, decade after decade to come.
