DURABLE’S DOUBLE CELEBRATION

The office supplies manufacturer DURABLE has risen to the highest ranks among German brands and is celebrating its 90th year in operation. DURABLE was founded in 1920 by Karl Hunke and Wilhelm Jochheim in the Westphalian city of Iserlohn. The company initially produced metal tabs, but soon other office products were added. The DURACLIP® clip file, invented 51 years ago, conquered hearts and markets both nationally and internationally, and soon it was evident DURACLIP® was here to stay. DURABLE itself was described as having charisma—a view also held by the renowned jury of the “Deutsche Standards” (German Standards) publishing house. In 2009, the editors, together with an advisory committee of recognized brand experts, nominated DURABLE and its DURACLIP® as “Brand of the Century.”
