HOLTZ OFFICE SUPPORT GmbH is a family business based in Wiesbaden, which has been successfully managed by the founding family for over 65 years - now in its 3rd generation.
Our corporate purpose is the development, production and distribution of high-quality presentation, visualisation, planning and conference technology under the magnetoplan brand, as well as the general distribution of high-quality layout markers under the Copic brand, and the development and distribution of high-quality and design-oriented graphic products under the transotype brand.
In 1956, the company was founded by pharmacist and inventor Hermann Holtz. The foundation of the then magnetoplan GmbH was based on the invention of the magnetic planning board, the worldwide patent of which was granted to our founder Hermann Holtz in many countries of the world as early as 1958. This innovation brought the company extremely dynamic growth around the globe. In 1980, after the death of our founder, the group of companies was taken over by his son Peter Holtz-Kathan and continued to be run with great commitment. In 2006, Peter Holtz-Kathan was able to complete the successful generational change to the third generation by appointing his son Christopher Holtz-Kathan to the management after completing his studies in international business administration.
