The Shanghai Hero Pen Company, popular for its Hero (Chinese: 英雄) fountain pens, is a Chinese company. Founded in 1931 as the Wolff Pen Manufacturing Co (Chinese: 上海华孚金笔厂), it was renamed in 1966 to the current name. Later on it is generally referred to as "Huafu" which is a Pinyin rendition of the Chinese name.
