What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
We LOVE calling Ohio home. During the merger, there was never any question the company would be located in Ohio because of the reasonable cost base and the talented team in place here. We highly value the standard of living that Ohio provides for our employees and their families.

Description of business:
2011 is a milestone year as we celebrate the 250th Anniversary of Faber-Castell and 35 years of Creativity for Kids! Our company is world renowned for its high quality, innovative products, commitment to tradition, and environmental awareness. The overall company is managed by eighth generation family member Count Anton von Faber-Castell, while Faber-Castell USA operates under the direction of CEO Jamie Gallagher.

In 1999 Faber-Castell acquired Creativity for Kids, and since then the company has experienced growth and improved market penetration. The Pen of the Year designed for pen connoisseurs reinforces the prestige of the Graf von Faber-Castell brand. The Art & Graphic line for professional artists includes pencil products such as Castell 9000® graphite pencils, and Polychromos® Color Pencils. The children's art supply line focuses on EcoPencils, made from reforested wood from Faber-Castell FSC-certified forests. The Creativity for Kids brand offers award-winning, classic and trendy arts & crafts kits for children. 2011 also marks the launch of a new product line for crafters called Design Memory Craft.

In 2004 the company moved to another facility in Cleveland with more warehouse space. The sales, customer service, marketing, product development, purchasing, shipping, financial and administrative departments are all based at this location.
