What began in 1953 as a repair shop in jute bags, founded by Mr. F. Visscher, grew almost twenty years later into a distribution company in cleaning cloths. To this day, Wecovi successfully serves the European market with sustainable and smart solutions for the professional cleaning and leisure market.

The reason

When jute bags were displaced by plastic and paper bags and bulk transport, founder Visscher was looking for a new challenge. He found it in a cleaning cloth that he saw on the table during a conversation abroad. Visscher bought five packages of these cloths and sold them on one afternoon to various garages in the region. The need from the market was clear and the idea for a new company was born.

Success recipe for the cleaning industry

Together with trading partner Wessels, Wecovi was founded in 1971, a merger of Wessels and Visscher  &  Co. Visscher personally ensured that he was given the exclusive right to sell the cleaning cloths in the Netherlands. And with success! In 1980 Visscher bought out his partner and continued on his own, until in the 90s his son Hans Paul Visscher joined the company, which Wecovi took over in 1997.

The Wecovi timeline

Wecovi has its own production of non-woven cloths, pads and microfibre. Under the Wecoline brand, Wecovi offers a complete range of professional cleaning materials that still contain the non-woven cloth, which once started Wecovi's growth.
