Founded in 1941, Wellco was a leading manufacturer and supplier of military footwear for more than 70 years.
However, from 2008 through 2012, Wellco fraudulently sold $8-million worth of Chinese-made boots with "Made in the USA" labels to the Department of Defense.
On November 28, 2014, Wellco Enterprises went out of business as per its Chapter 11 liquidation filing under bankruptcy.
In 2018, several Wellco executives were sentenced on federal fraud and smuggling charges.
