HEIKO was the largest producer of fountain pens in East Germany from 1950-ish until 1990, when they were purchased by Schneider. Who were they, what were they, before they became state-owned by German Democratic Republic? What was their origin? When did they begin? Surely there was a reason the GDR based its pen production in the Treuhand. Gotta be a story here, somewhere in history.
