About Prodir :
Some are intended to be provocative and striking, while others are more conservative and subtle – our writing instruments not only have to write well, they also have to appear authentic. They have to offer something new and fresh time and again. 250 employees at our headquarters in Switzerland and in eight branch offices around the globe work to ensure that we achieve just that in every order. Our team works tirelessly to produce ballpoint pens so good that they can represent the most demanding of brands credibly and sustainably . For us, writing and advertising go hand in hand.
Writing instruments and communication – these are our passions. The wonderful thing about the promotional products industry is that we are able to dedicate our work to both. We are therefore delighted that our work has been recognized with awards in both areas.
