History

The name Weloze comes from the first syllables of the three company's co-founders surnames - Webber, Lorandi and Zeni. Founded in 1972, this small business manufactured automotive crankcase protectors, conveyor metal chains (mainly for bottles washing machines) and electrical components for the construction industry (electrical wall boxes). In 1973, Mr Valmor Romani, who had been working as the company's sales representative, purchased Mr Zeni's stake and became a business partner. In 1979, as they were having difficulties running the business, fact that could have led the company to bankruptcy, they decided to sell it to their main supplier at the time: Triches.
