Writing Our Own Story Since 1944
In 1944, Marcel Bich and his business partner went into business as a maker of writing instruments parts in France. Six years later, Bich launched his own ballpoint pen under the BIC® brand — a shortened, more memorable version of his own name. An icon was born.
In the more than 60 years since, BIC has grown into a trusted global brand by making simple, inventive and reliable products for everyone, everywhere. You can find BIC® Pens in the hands of millions of people around the world.
