The story

The story begins in 1984 when two longtime friends, both lovers of manly rugby, decide to bind and enter the big melee of entrepreneurship. Thierry and Frederic Wahnich are just as determined as they were in rugby when they launched their first line of sportswear towards rugby clubs in the Parisian region. In parallel, Walomo offers a laundry service for Old School rugby shirts, which, by a cold winter game, become heavy armors of mud.



In 1989, Walomo gets specialized in promotional balls. The 1998 World Cup is fast approaching and time has come to anticipate. Fortunately, marking techniques are becoming more widespread. Walomo becomes a pioneer in the tampon printing with the artistic side of Thierry, who is more comfortable with a brush than a pen at that time. Just like the national team, Walomo is popular on all fronts : a booth in the brand-new Stade de France, 2 million balls sold and .....:

En 1989, Walomo se spécialise dans le ballon promotionnel. La Coupe du Monde 1998 arrive à grands pas et l'on veut anticiper. Fort heureusement, les techniques de marquage sont de plus en plus répandues. Walomo devient alors un des précurseurs dans la tampographie grâce à la fibre artistique de Thierry, qui est plus à l'aise avec un pinceau qu'un stylo à l'époque. A l'instar de l'équipe nationale, Walomo se retrouve sur tous les tableaux : un stand dans l'antre du tout nouveau Stade de France, 2 millions de ballons vendus et..... :

In the early 2000s, the 2 founders multiply their business trip in Asia. The Chinese Eldorado starts to point the tip of his nose and none of them want to miss the boat. Thierry & Fred boarded on the Chinese aircrafts to discover a country that built their admiration. Walomo opens its first office in China. This office will allow them to create automation with a powerful country. They manufacture THE parka that will make Tv Shows, regattas, weekends at the sea and the mountain: the Nordik. For 15 years, the Nordik never left Walomo's catalog and success does not bend: we recently reached the milestone of 500,000 sold parkas!

In 2007, Walomo leverages its expertise in marking textiles to develop a first range of POS displays. It is the revelation: a unique profession that allows Walomo to sit as an expert in 3 different areas: textile, balls and now POS.
