The story of Cross is one of inspiration ingenuity and passion for excellence…..
How a pen came to symbolise achievement, human potential, and usable luxury. It’s a story that began in 1846 when Richard Cross, an English artisan, sailed to America and set about making ingenious writing instruments.
It’s the story of how Richard and his son Alonzo Townsend Cross would forever change the way the world puts ink to paper. The spirit of the Cross family still abounds, wherever entrepreneurship lives, when a vision comes to life, when teamwork builds something great, when an idea is born, plans made, verse perfected. The essence of Cross today, as it was in the beginning, lies in the doing: in seeking and finding, in the pursuit of greatness, unique to each individual, in making your mark.
