S 5 CE 179 N I O F Y OVER 220 YEARS Q U A LIT Innovation for over 220 years. C orporate historians tell us that few companies survive more than 100 years, so without a doubt, DIXON Ticonderoga is proud of its over 220 year history and tradition. Dixon was founded in 1795 during the second term of our first President, George Washington. Two of our company founders, Louis Prang and Joseph Dixon, greatly contributed to the history of the United States. Today, Dixon is the leader in premium-grade wood case pencils and one of the leading providers of wood-case graphite pencils. It is our commitment to continue to provide innovative quality products and service in honor of the traditions set by our founders.
