The incredible story - the incredible American heritage of the Dixon Ticonderoga Company - emerged as much more than a simple reporting of facts, figures, and events. Each facet of the company's disparate development was based upon one simple principal: Best of Its Kind. When the turnpike roads were planned and constructed, the best route, the best materials, and the best means of construction possible were implemented. When Joseph Dixon strove to produce his graphite crucibles, only the best clay, the best graphite, and the best workmen could get the job done. When Dr. Field and William D. Curtis created their chalkboard crayons, only the best naturally chalk and the best processes would do. When Louis Prang sought to replace European water color paints with a domestic product, only the very best manufacturer - the American Crayon Company - could meet his standards. In fact, this one theme - Best of Its Kind - both directly and indirectly, persists throughout the Dixon Ticonderoga Company story. The Dixon Ticonderoga Company has emerged through being the very Best of Its Kind.
