Don't tell PILOT Corporation that penmanship is a dead art. Its bottom line says it ain't so. The company, founded in 1918 by a Tokyo Nautical School professor and inventor, manufactures and distributes writing instruments (more than 75% of sales), as well as stationery, computer supplies, and jewels, among other consumer goods. The company is Japan's largest maker of pens, mechanical pencils, and markers, and it is among the world's top suppliers. Europe and the US are both major markets for the Japanese penmaker. Other products include computer supplies (printer ink ribbons, office equipment, and calculators) and toys. PILOT operates worldwide through about 20 subsidiary companies and four affiliates.
