About us

Ask someone in Germany for an edding, and they know to hand you a marker pen. With the ink expertise developed in six decades, edding have built innovative marking solutions for almost any surface imaginable. This has transformed edding from a German family business into a global company, active in 110 markets around the world.

While we are very proud of our heritage, edding has its eyes set firmly on the future. And the future is digital. And that’s why in 2018, we launched edding Tech.

Our mission is to empower our business customers to do things with ink they didn’t think were possible.

Our first two disruptive technologies: edding compact printers and edding code.

They are just our first two innovations. It is still early days. We’ll continue to apply our ink expertise to technology that makes the impossible possible. Watch this space.
