The son of the company founder C. Josef Lamy died last Sunday at the age of 84, as the Heidelberg company has now announced.
In 2006 Manfred Lamy retired from the operative business. Today the company has around 380 employees. Most recently, the Heidelberg-based company produced around eight million writing instruments per year, and in 2018 the company had sales of 118 million euros.
A series of models with a wooden handle from the manufacturer has been popular among schoolchildren in Germany for years, which is intended to help beginners to write more beautifully.
The “Lamy 2000” model emerged from a collaboration with the German industrial designer Gerd A. Müller.
