Founding of the winery

Johann Wolfarth establishes a winery in Neubronn and begins manufacturing wooden ladder wagons and horse-drawn sleighs.


Reconstruction/postwar period

When Friedrich Wolfarth, Johann's son, came home from war and prison camp in July 1945, he found a burned-down property. However, the workshop of his father, who died in 1941, was still in good condition and so he was able to start rebuilding it immediately after his return.


Time of rethinking

In 1950, the time had come for a rethink, because the profession of wainwright or blacksmith were no longer in demand. Friedrich Wolfarth decided to remain self-employed and made his first experiments with resins and plastics.


The first barn window made of GRP

After several years of experiments, Friedrich Wolfarth applied for his first patent for the barn window made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic in 1956. It was also the first GRP barn window in Europe.


Construction of the current company headquarters

Friedrich Wolfarth began to construct a new building in 1958, which is now the headquarters of Friedrich Wolfarth GmbH & Co.KG. This was quickly followed by the acquisition of the first press, which laid the foundation for the thermoforming process of GRP parts.


Casement windows made of GRP

Then, in early 1970, the first frame windows were made of glass-fiber-reinforced polyester (GRP). They are still successfully produced and marketed today.


Window well production / tools construction

In the years 1975 - 1980 the production of GRP light wells was started and an own tool construction was established in order to be able to produce molded parts by ourselves.


Ulrich Wolfarth joins the company

Ulrich Wolfarth, Friedrich's first son, joins the company in 1980.

Late 1980

Drainage gutters

With the start of production of drainage gutters made of fiberglass-reinforced polyester at the end of the 1980s, the product range was expanded again.


Hans-Friedrich Wolfarth joins the company

In 1990, the second son, Hans-Friedrich Wolfarth, also joined the company.

Early 1990

Production of residential windows

With the construction of a new production hall at the beginning of 1990, the production of residential windows and front doors was started.


WOLFA location Naumburg

In 1995 a new production facility was built & opened in Görschen near Naumburg (Saxony-Anhalt). All WOLFA steel products are manufactured at the Görschen facility.


Construction of new adiministration building

In 2000, the administrative building at the main factory in Neubronn was expanded and a new office building was constructed.


Profi window wells

In 2008, the whole window well system was changed to today's Profi window well series. All molding tools had to be re-planned and manufactured for this purpose.

The distribution warehouse ISG Schwalbach was taken over by WOLFA as another location in 2014.
