Stabilo Malaysia: The Hallmark of Quality

Stabilo (also known as Schwan-Stabilo) first started out as a pencil company by the name of Grossberger & Kurz Bleistiftfabrik in Nuremberg, Germany in year 1855. It was then acquired by Gustav Adam Schwanhäusser in 1865 when the company went bankrupt. He renamed the company to “Schwan pencil factory” and used the picture of a swan as its logo. In 1976, the company rebranded itself to Schwan-Stabilo in honor of the Schwanhäusser family. Since then, the company has grown and expanded its product lineup. Then, in 1992, the brand split into 2 separate companies, Schwan-Stabilo Cosmetics and Schwan-Stabilo (writing instruments).

We will be focusing on the Schwan-Stabilo company that manufactures writing instruments. After all, that is what Stabilo is known for in Malaysia. Schwan-Stabilo is headquartered in Heroldsberg, Germany, but has production subsidiaries located across the world. One of them being Swan Malaysia that is located in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. This particular subsidiary handles the manufacturing of ballpoint pens and is named as Swan Malaysia.
