Wellco Boots. The company presently known as Wellco Enterprises, Inc. began operations in 1941 under its original name, Wellco Shoe Corporation.


The company presently known as Wellco Enterprises, Inc. began operations in 1941 under its original name, Wellco Shoe Corporation.

By way of background, the history of Wellco goes back to the nineteenth century when the grandfather of the founding partners started the family's first shoe factory in Germany. In the early 1930s, the German company developed the first practical method for molding and attaching a rubber sole to a shoe upper in a single vulcanizing operation. The German company had the foresight to patent this technology worldwide.

Early on, the principals of Wellco founded another company, known as Ro-Search, Inc., which specialized in licensing the partners' (Wellco) patented technology to other manufacturers around the world and in manufacturing the specialized molds and presses required for the use of their processes. Ro-Search still survives today as a subsidiary of Wellco, which eventually changed its name to Wellco-Ro-Search Industries, Inc. A further name change took place in the early 1960s to present designation, Wellco Enterprises, Inc.
