The Eberhard Faber factory was established in 1861 by John Eberhard Faber.

The Eberhard Faber Company suffered a devastating fire in 1872, destroying their first factory which was situated along the East River.[1]

In 1956-57, the Eberhard Faber Company moved operations from their Greenpoint, New York location (established in 1872) to a state-of-the-art facility in Crestwood Industrial Park, located in Mountain Top, Pennsylvania.[2]

The factory would eventually employ approximately 400 workers until 1986, when in a cost-saving move several departments were relocated to Mexico. By 1988 however, the company was sold to Faber-Castell U.S.A. in Lewisburg, Tennessee, despite an offer from Dixon.[3]

The Eberhard Faber brand is currently owned by Faber-Castell
