Alfred Möbius and Heinrich Ruppert found the company “Möbius+Ruppert“ in 1922, in the north of Erlangen - the heart of the European pencil industry - where they rent premises and produce, initially with 20 employees, pencil sharpeners made of artificial resin, magnesium and zinc via compression-casting.
They moved to their own premises in the same area in 1929 and continued their expansion. Today, Möbius+Ruppert is owned and led by the fourth family generation and employs 75 people. The range of products has been expanded continuously and M + R now supply premium products in the fields of school, office and leisure activities are exported to 75 countries world wide.
The brand M+R stands for 'Sharpening', 'Cutting' and 'Drawing'. Those core competencies are expressed through the slogan “sharpen your senses!”.
