Uniball may seem like a relative newcomer but it does actually have a long history. The original company was founded in 1887 in Tokyo and was known as the Masaki Pencil Manufacturing Company. It later exported its products to Mexico, Egypt, Holland, Argentina, Belgium and Portugal. After WWII, the company became known as the Mitsubishi Pencil Co Ltd. The company produced the 'uni' (from the word unique) pencil, a high-grade, high quality pencil that became a bestseller and paved the way for the brand's recognition worldwide. The company later expanded its production lines to include the manufacture of ballpoint pens. In 1979, the Uni-Ball was launched, becoming the first water-based pen in the world. From there, the company continued to produce innovative and top quality products that not only generated strong sales performances, they also helped cement the brand's reputation as a reliable writing instrument. Today, 60% of the top 10 rollerball bestsellers are made by Uniball, according to the 2006 data from the GFK Marketing Services. It is also a popular choice as promotional pens because of the quality of its ink and pen materials.
