About Madras Pencil Factory

Founded:

Corporate headquarters: Madras, India

Cool fact: In the northeastern corner of Tamil Nadu on the Bay of Bengal, CHENNAI (still commonly referred to by its former British name, Madras) is India's fourth largest city, with a population nudging six and a half million. Hot, fast, congested and noisy, it's the major transportation hub of the south.

The next acquisition of V. Perumal Chetty & Sons was a pencil factory just before the Great War broke out in 1914. Starting with the `Star of India' pencils, the Madras Pencil Factory was to develop more than 100 brands in the years between the Wars.
