Faber improved the Eberhard-Faber Company’s product line by adding fountain pens, mechanical pencils, and refill leads. Faber also invented the clamp tip type of pencil with a removable, adjustable eraser. Faber grew the company’s Brooklyn pencil factory from 180,000 square feet of floor space to 455,000 square feet.
