THE HISTORY OF WIBOL-LACKE GmbH COMPANY

AIt all began with a paint and service company named WILHELM BOHLE.

The varnish and paint factory WIBOL LACKE GMBH was founded afterwards. Mr. Wilhelm Bohle was the company's founder more than 70 years ago. In 1935 he founded the first dying and service firm in the chemical field, which carried his name until the 14th of January 1938 when the construction of the first industrial hall in Solingen was finished and the production of varnishes and paints begun.

Other industrial halls were built and added to the initial construction in 1940/1948/1953. In 1942 the factory was closed on economic and military grounds. The factory reopened in 1945 and continued the production of varnishes and paints until 1948.
In 1949, Mrs. Marga Fahle, born Bohle (Mr. Wilhelm Bohle's daughter), joined the business. For reasons of urban planning, in 1983 the old location of the factory was abandoned and a new factory was built in Schmalzgrube, the industrial area of the city of Solingen, on a 5,000 square meter surface. Starting with 1986 the factory has extended horizontally and developed its industrial range of special varnishes and paints and WIBOL LACKE became a medium-sized company. In 1993 Mr. Burkhard Fahle took over the company's management, this business being nowadays at its third generation.
