BWF Protec

From a wool felt factory to a specialist in technical needle felts

Founded in 1892 as a wool felt factory in the Bavarian town of Hof, BWF Protec combines tradition with technical progress, and expertise with an innovative spirit. In the 1960s, we expanded our product range to include needle felts by the metre. In the mid-1990s, BWF Protec acquired equipment allowing us to produce endless needled felt rollers and felt belts, as well as cutting tables and punches for manufacturing customer-specific parts from its own needle felt.
