How it all started
In 1965 Adrie van Helden founded the company Van Helden Relatiegeschenken. After receiving valuable advice about the increased popularity of the ballpoint pen, he started selling branded ballpoint pens in the evening as a door-to-door salesman. The part time job turned out to be a tremendous success. Thanks to entrepreneurship, passion for his customers and the promotional article business it grew into a successful family business.
What started with the sale of branded ballpoint pens, is now an international company with branches in seven countries. Ballpoint pens are still an important product, but today we deliver over 5,000 unique products directly from stock.
