50 Years of Moon Products!


On October 27th 2011, Moon Products, one of the last remaining domestic pencil production facilities in the United States celebrated 50 years of operation. Current employees, former employees, members of the community and press met to commemorate the occasion with appetizers and refreshments at the facility in Lewisburg, Tennessee. Members of the press enjoyed an entertaining and educational tour of the facility to better understand how Moon manufactures California cedar and graphite into Gold Standard #2 pencils.

Moon Products manufactures and distributes stationery products for mass retail and educational channels, and is the nation’s largest pencil manufacturer. Over the past 50 years, Moon Products employed hundreds of Marshall County residents and numerous employees have been with our family for 20, 30 and even 40 years.

Print coverage of the event was secured in The Marshall County Tribune, The Elk Valley Times and The Tennessean. Also, a 3 minute TV segment ran on Tennessee local NBC affiliate WSMV.
