On behalf of the Candlewic Company we wish to thank you for taking
the first step in wanting to make candles as a hobby and/or business.
The Candlewic Company, like many companies, truly started as a hobby
for Bill and Betty Binder back in the early 1970s. When their oldest
son was in the Cub Scouts, Betty was looking for a project for the troop to undertake
that would be fun and unique. The project that fit this bill was
pouring candles using a milk carton as a mold. The project was so successful and
fun that candles were being made almost everyday in the Binder
It did not take long before the business/hobby took over the residential
home of the Binders and their garage was full of supplies to make
candles. These supplies were being shipped to candle manufacturers throughout
the world even in 1972 when much of the economy was regionally
based. In 1978 the business moved into an official warehouse and the business
continued to grow under the leadership of Bill and Betty Binder.
The Candlewic Company is located in beautiful Bucks County and continues to lead the candle industry in new developments to make candle making easier and interesting for companies of all sizes. The Candlewic Company has focused 100% on candle making
committed to serving all of our customers. The second generation
Binders are now at the helm of Candlewic and continue to search
for and offer new
products. We remain committed to our customers and the candle industry.
