Back in 1899 e+m Holzprodukte was founded by Mr Konrad Ehmann. Under his brandname Turnery Ehmann he produced more than 10.000 different  models of nib penholders for customers all over the world and became Germany´s largest manufacturer of nib penholders. During the World War 2 the production was completely destroyed and only few models could further be produced. Following the needs after the war, mainly technical wood turnings were produced.

In 1983 Mr. Wolfram Mümmler, the fourth generation of the founder family, restarted  the production of wooden writing instruments. A variety of clutch pencils, wooden pens, mechanical pencils and accessories were developed and are now one of the major product lines. Since 2003 Mr. Wolfram Mümmler is the sole owner of the business and established the company name e+m Holzprodukte. The "e" stands for the founder Ehmann and the "m" stands for Mümmler, the CEO and owner. One of his major concerns is to keep the old traditions of classical manufacturing alive and to transform them into the modern production process. More than 100 years after the foundation, e+m Holzprodukte are again one of the leading manufacturers of wooden writing instruments.

Wood! Pure nature! e+m Holzprodukte presents exclusive products in wood. Therefore we need natural resources for this: Wood. Our products make use of more than 20 different types of wood. Most of the types of wood are from Europe and a very few from overseas. We prefer to work mainly with our domestic wooden species. Some of our beech trees we saw in our own forest in the south-east of Nuremberg, e.g. the picturesque Hasenloh countryside in the region Pilsach or the Ottenberg forest in the region Labersricht.

We want to supply you with a high-quality wood product you will be able to enjoy for a long time; to allow us to do this, our woods undergo a number of production and inspection steps which ensure the quality. For example, they are stored for up to two years just to let them dry properly. Mahogany and olive wood have to dry longer, until to seven years. We would like to give you a brief review of the wooden species used for our products. A large number of our domestic woods such as pear, cherry or walnut belong to precious woods.

Sustainability is our watchword! Sustainability is our highest priority. Controlled forestry ensures that the number of trees felled in German forests is much lower than natural growth. We, however, have also undergone FSC-certification to give our customers the certainty of controlled sustainability. The certification chain extends from the forests to the sawmill and up to the processor. Only when all the strict rules of the FSC Commission have been satisfied  may the product bear the FSC logo. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) was founded in 1993. It is the aim of the FSC to promote environmentally friendly, socially compatible and economically sustainable management of the world`s forests. The FSc organises an international accreditation system for forestry products which is now required by a number of large buying companies in North America and Europe. All products, which bear the FSC logo, can be shown to come from forests which meet the internationally recognised principles and criteria of the FSC.

Our product range can be divided into two main areas. The manufacture of technical parts from wood forms part of our core business. We work to your technical drawings to produce turned parts and milled parts as well as special turned parts in various sizes for any industrial purpose, all made from the most varied wood materials and with a wide variety of finishes.The production of writing instruments, the second part of our production range, is where our traditional focus lies. In line with technical advances, our emphasis has moved away from nib penholders and more towards wooden writing instruments such as clutch pencils in wood, ballpoint pens in wood, give-aways in wood and accessories for an attractive-looking desk. You can always find something new from us!

We are pleased to present our fine wood products and promotional wooden gifts to you. Whether it is a question of clutch pencils in wood, ballpoint pens in wood, ideas for appealing gifts for an attractive-looking desk, give-aways in wood, accessories for friends of beautiful writing instruments or nib penholders for calligraphy, you are sure to be surprised by the selection and abundance of ideas we can offer. A special theme of interest is the manufacturing of eco-friendly promotional items: woodpens, fsc-certified wood products, corporate business gifts, promotional gifts, green gifts, made in Germany. Ask us - we are glad to advise You! All of our products are made on classic turning leathes according to craft tradition. We prefer to work with domestic woods such as copper beech, sycamore, maple, pearwood or cherry. The tactile, pleasing finish of our wood products is created using natural oils and waxes. This makes us and our wood products feel good for a long time!
