It all began with minor inventions that put the WOLF company on the map. One of the first achievements was the draw hoe, a tool designed to make agricultural work easier. Gregor Wolf developed it in 1927 in the ironware factory that his father August Wolf had founded together with his sons Gregor and Otto in 1922. The idea first came to him on his way home from work, while observing local farmers working their fields.
This initial innovation was followed by many others. In 1953, ten years after the founding of the company, the WOLF Geräte GmbH was the first company in Europe to offer lawnmowers with rotating blades. In 1958 WOLF introduced the first electrical lawnmower to the European market prior to developing the world's most silent petrol lawnmower in 1975.
Over the years, the company has developed a clear and distinctive profile in the “green area”. The WOLF Geräte GmbH of the early era became WOLF-Garten, an established company known for their key skills regarding product quality, product diversity and gardening know-how with an expertise in environmental awareness. The focused research and development work in its own research institutes was just as important for their growth as the development of new market segments.
Later global innovations helped give the brand the distinctive wolf face on a red background. The company logo, which can be found on all WOLF-Garten gardening tools to this day. WOLF-Garten is highly successful with its innovative multi-star® system that has guaranteed top quality for more than 30 years and confidently provides a 10-year warranty for all associated products. The development of innovative seed and fertiliser products, as well as the extension of its lawn mower range have demonstrated the strength and diversity of the company. WOLF-Garten develops lawn mowers for mowing and mulching and also provides the first hybrid lawn mower with a new patented battery system. WOLF-Garten was one of the first companies to offer a wide range of versatile lawn tractors to the European market. Handheld all-season tools and special devices for winter use round off the WOLF-Garten range.
WOLF-Garten promotes environmentally compatible technologies in times of climate change. The Blue Power program, which extends through most product groups, including a new type of environmentally compatible fertiliser, clearly show the commitment of WOLF-Garten. Numerous quality awards and excellent results in comparative testings document, why the trust of novice as well as professional gardeners throughout Europe is justified by the quality and innovative strength of WOLF-Garten. Making garden work easier, more enjoyable and more environmentally compatible will guide our corporate future like a green beacon. This goal is fully supported by our employees at the 5 European production sites and the 14 sales teams located in Europe, the USA and China. It is them who ensure the familiar reliability, the high quality standard of the company and the inexhaustible innovative drive of WOLF-Garten.
