The grandfather of the current director, Bas Lensen, started a in paper (papeterie) trading company in 1928. He delivered all kinds of paper, cardboard, packaging materials to companies in the Twente and Meppel region (the Netherlands) on a cargo bike.
It was not only the production of paper and pens alone, because the range was expanded with among others lighters and ceramics. The company expanded several times. After a big fire in the mid-1970s, Lensen senior realized the big picture and the production facility in Bergentheim (the Netherlands) was rebuilt to create sufficient space for the continued growth and development.
Meanwhile, Toppoint has grown into a multinational with offices in various European countries. The company's headquarters is since 2019 situated in Hengelo, the Netherlands.
