ITOYA was founded on the principle of offering the most innovative, distinctive and quality crafted office, art and school supplies available. This tradition continues today through the unique offerings and brands that make up the ITOYA family of products in North America.
ITOYA of America, Ltd., a subsidiary of ITO-YA Ltd., Japan, was established in 1976. North American customers have since enjoyed groundbreaking and often-imitated innovations including the Doubleheader two-sided pen, the Gripper rubber cushion ballpoint pen, polypropylene presentation books, and the O'Glue liquid gel glue with sponge tip applicator. These design and concept breakthroughs are the cornerstone of the ITOYA philosophy, challenging convention and showcasing new ways to serve the customer. This innovative spirit can still be found in each and every product available through ITOYA.
ITO-YA Ltd., Japan was founded in 1904 and has set the global benchmark in retailing unique and class-leading stationery products. From the United States to Canada, ITO-YA Ltd., Japan and its worldwide network of affiliates are dedicated to uphold the traditions set forth over 100 years ago.
