Woco was founded by Franz Josef Wolf in 1956 and, today, it provides the competitive benefits of an internationally active corporation in conjunction with the flexibility and organization of a modern, medium-sized company.
Having completed training to become an industrial sales management assistant and following a course of studies in mechanical engineering, Wolf worked a business administration/technical assistant to the Executive Board at Ullrich Gummiwerke AG in Gelnhausen, Germany, until 1956.
On August 15, 1956, at the age of 21, he founded “Woco Franz Josef Wolf & Co. Gummi- und Kunststoffwerk”, a rubber and plastics factory, in Bad Soden-Salmünster, Germany.
Franz Josef Wolf created a company that, during the next 60 years, evolved from being a small rubber manufacturer to a globally active international corporation. Today, he is responsible for the Industrial Division as General Manager and provides support with his long-standing experience and business relations that have grown over the years.
