Papermate, a division of Sanford and Rubbermaid, has announced that they are planning to purchase the German brand Kaweco in an effort to introduce the American market to upscale, fountain pens, mechanical pencils and refillable pens.
While not being described as a hostile takeover, the purchase is not without its controversy. Kaweco’s current owners, Herlitz, could not be reached for comment.

The link to the article seems to not work. Is there an article?
I’m definitely reading this with a grain of salt, considering today’s date, but you definitely gave me a start, considering how I typically feel about Paper Mate. 😀
Okay, that’s almost as scary as the CBS one! 😉
OK Aprols Fools!
This is an April Fools prank, right? Right?!
Thank God it is 1st April, I was so upset seeing this news 🙂 Rubbermaid killed brands
