In 2000, Newell Rubbermaid purchased the Gillette portfolio of writing products which included Parker, Waterman, Paper Mate and the Liquid Paper brands. They are now the global leader in writing instruments also owning brands such as Sharpie who are the number one brand of writing instruments in the United States. Newell Rubbermaid now produce just 47 writing instruments as part of the Waterman range with approximately the same number of products in each of three categories; fountain pens, ball point pens and roller ball pens.
Waterman is recognised as the oldest manufacturer of fountain pens, still in existence today, 130 years after Lewis Waterman received his first patent following the loss of that vital business contract. From the humble beginnings of one salesman fashioning a reliable pen feed from a wagon wheel spoke in a country farm in the 1880s to a prominent position in the portfolio of the global leader in the writing instrument, the enduring tale of Waterman is one of triumph over adversity and dogged determination to produce a superior writing instrument.
