About Us

Take me directly to Our products

Essem is a global leader in writing technology, selling it’s wide range of products to more than fifty countries around the world today, including to some of the world’s best brands. With production facilities both in India and Thailand, we offer high quality and fully optimised tips to meet all our customer’s individual needs.

Essem embraces a philosophy of total quality management, uncompromising and relentless attention to our design and manufacturing processes, inspection procedures and customer service.

Staying ahead

No one grip, type of ink, or the writing width of a tip can suit everyone's needs.

Writing has formed the core of civilization for millennia, with the ballpoint pen as one of our greatest inventions. Yet, writing styles vary across cultures, countries and among people, meaning that pen tips need to be as varied as the people who use them. Some people write with a heavy, blunt script and need a wide tip, while others have a lighter style so that the ink barely touches the page. Whatever the demands, essem has the technology and the experience to meet those requirements.

At essem, we know we have to continually strive to be the best. And that means more than just producing high-quality, reliable, smooth-finish pen tips. It means having the vision to anticipate trends and adopt new processes as they emerge and evolve.

We make sure we are up-to-date with the most advanced technologies from the world over and we continually keep abreast of trends in the pen market so that you, the customer, are always ahead of the curve.

Building relationships through customization

We know that there is no single pen that can appeal to every person. That's why we work very closely with our customers to find out exactly what their demands and needs are. But how we do this?

We begin with conceptualizing your market needs and requirements. The primary focus is to design, develop and produce a tip that perfectly comple-ments your selected ink. In other words, to make the tip's external and internal design, engineering, shape and performance according to your specific requirement. The design is finalized, samples produced and then feedback collected. Through this loop, we are able to develop a product that has been honed and fine-tuned according to exacting specifications and requirements. This way, the customer gets the benefit of a completely tailor-made and customized product.

We offer technical guidance and can help you resolve any technical difficulty. We arrange for customers to visit our factories to gain a deeper technical understanding of the products they are buying. In the end, it's all about building a relationship....a long and lasting one that responds effectively to your business.

Technology, equipments and processes

Spindles running at more than 50,000 revolutions a minute.. the turning and drilling of 2.30mm thick stainless steel alloy blanks resulting in a spew of fine metal powder....a 0.40mm diameter tungsten carbide ball being embedded in a nickel silver housing.....a conscientious worker examining the housing of a typical tip magnified 100 times on a high-powered stereo microscope....this would be just a typical day at essem's factory.

Using a combination of highly-precise and automated equipments, advanced technologies and sophisticated systems for manufacturing and quality control, we continually strive for perfection. A strong belief in systems is evident all over the shop-floor and our various departments. Our commitment to quality control is one of 'continuous improvement'. From end to end, we have developed stringent manufacturing practices and refined them over the years.

This flexible, modular approach from design through manufacturing provides a customized, end-to-end solution to our customers, thereby reducing cost and assuring quality of both our products and our service.


Synergy means cooperation and part of our essence is our abiltiy to work as a team learning from and growing with each other.

Several of our staff have been with us for more than two decades, gaining valuable knowledge of the manufacturing process as well as an unparalleled insight into the dynamics of this technology-oriented industry.

Training and cross-training helps us to become more flexible and to respond quickly to the changing needs of customers.

Collaboration at all levels of the manufacturing process also means that the essem team are more productive and proficient at accomplishing their shared goal of developing the highest-quality writing tool.

When a customer chooses to work with essem, they aren't just selecting a brand, but a distinct working style.

Precision engineering and research

At essem, we know that it's not enough to be on top of our game today and that we need to continualy strive to improve our skills and knowledge base so that we remain the preferred choice for our custom-ers.

Our research takes us across the globe seeking out new ideas, innovations, and knowledge that will keep us ahead of the competition. It's a constant challenge that we set for our most creative minds, never to be content with the status quo but to discover better techniques and processes that can continue to improve the essem experience
