Montegrappa, the first Italian pen manufacturer founded in 1912, still stands in the same historic building in Bassano del Grappa in the prosperous north-eastern part of Italy, retaining its history and heritage.
Heritage, legacy and quality continue to remain the intrinsic values of the company. It offers a wide range of sophisticated writing instruments that are intricately designed to suit every individual.
Montegrappa is evolving into a word-class luxury brand. While writing instruments continue to be the main focus, the company also offers a range of elegant wristwatches, cufflinks, leather accessories and fragrance.
Founded in 1912 as a “Manifattura pennini d’oro e penne stilografiche” (“Manufacturer of gold nibs and fountain pens”) Montegrappa has been manufacturing writing implements for over a century.
Montegrappa – originally known as ELMO – benefitted from a pool of local talents, a workforce able to produce finely crafted objects, with style, with panache and with a drive to achieve excellence. Montegrappa’s factory is located on the bank of the River Brenta, the river winding through the town of Bassano del Grappa.
Montegrappa’s geography and its Italian heritage are important elements of the company’s persona. ‘Italian-ness’ is at the heart of Montegrappa tradition. It defines the brand philosophy, its attitudes, its style.
