Wenger Company

The Wenger company was founded in 1893 at Courtetelle, a little Swiss town in the Northwest of this tradional European country. In that time, however, the Wenger company was named after it’s founder – Paul Boechat & Cie. In the first couple of years, their production was mainly focused on knives. Reason was really simple as a well known cutlery manufacturer, Paul Boeachat received an exclusive contract for the Swiss Army – to design an unique multifunctional army knive. It was just them and Victorinox who were entrusted with such a difficult task. They succeeded and created an icon. In about 1897, Thedore Wenger was hired as a general manager and it was him whose name was given to the company. And even today, after all those years, the Wenger & Co. S.A. proudly bears his name.
