Brand: Berol Pencil Co.
Made in: USA
This pencil is the bendable kind of plastic material.....EPCON process as the Empire Pencil Co. called it. Since Empire and Berol merged to become Empire Berol I imagine they got the technology....however these ones feel a little more solid and less bendable. Nonetheless they are quite the oddity and quite rare.
The company was originally founded in New York City by the Berolzheimer family, and in 1969 became part of Berol Corporation. Berol was purchased by Empire in 1986, which was purchased by Sanford in 1995 (which has been a division of Newell Rubbermaid since 1992).
