The company has 14 factories, and 20 stores all over the globe. They have an entire staff of 7000 people in over 100 countries. The family that founded the company continues to lead it. As the saying goes, family owned companies always thrive and go the distance. The products sold by the company are quite varied, from paints to writing instruments like fountain pens. The interesting thing about the company is that the logo, is the coat of arms. It features two knights jousting. Outside of Europe, were nobility doesn’t matter, the Castell’s knighthood comes off as mild amusement. Titles and ranks don’t matter in the end, when you croak. You cannot take them to your grave. For our purposes, they produce high quality art supplies in large bulks.
