Heritage In 1958, Marcel Bich realized the universal appeal of the mass-produced ballpoint pen and turned his attention to the U.S. market, purchasing the Waterman Pen Company in Seymour, CT. When BIC® pens first arrived on the scene, the company created an exciting national television campaign to tell consumers that a BIC pen “Writes the First Time, Every Time!®” In 1963, Waterman-BIC moved into expanded facilities in Milford, CT, which is still the home of BIC’s Lighter manufacturing facility.
