After 80 days at sea, Louis Burton has placed third in the Vendee Globe, the world's largest and toughest sailing race to date. BIC was one of the proud sponsors of his boat, Bureau Vallée 2, and our logo on the mainsail has accompanied the skipper for the 45,000 km of this incredible adventure. We have been one of Burton's proud sponsors since 2018 and we look forward to supporting his races through 2025.

BIC - Why Work With Us?

BIC is a family-owned company listed on the Paris Stock Exchange and a world leader in stationery, lighters, and shavers.

For more than 60 years, BIC has honored the tradition of providing high-quality, simple, inventive and reliable choices for everyone, everywhere, every time.  

  • SIMPLE - BIC® products provide easy answers for everyday needs. In creating its first product, the BIC® Cristal® ballpoint pen, BIC chose to go straight to what’s essential: create something for everyone to use that is simple, yet reliable, and provides a solution for something that we all do. This vision is at the heart of every brand decision BIC makes.
  • INVENTIVE - BIC adapts and develops its products to the changing needs of the consumer. Each time BIC identifies a specific need, its research and development teams respond with technical ingenuity to optimize performance.
  • RELIABLE - The best way to gain and keep consumer loyalty is to provide products that offer the same quality of use from start to finish. Every BIC® Cristal® pen provides the same quality writing experience, writing for more than 1.2 miles (2 km). Every BIC® full-size lighter produces up to 3,000 steady flames. Each package of BIC® Flex5™ Hybrid and BIC® Simply Soleil Click™ razors feature refillable blades for the shaver’s handle for long-lasting use.
  • FOR EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE - Write in many colors, highlight, draw, color in, correct, produce a flame or shave… with BIC® products, everyone in the world is sure to find what they need, at an affordable price, offering both quality and reliability. In addition, BIC® products are available to consumers worldwide in more than four million retail outlets, from open-air pushcarts to large retailers.
