History of Wilson
The Wilson Sporting Goods Company has an interesting history. Back in 1913, a meat-packing company by the name of Ashland Manufacturing, used animal by-products from its slaughterhouses to make tennis racquets and violin strings. A few years later, a man by the name of Thomas E. Wilson took over the company and renamed it the Thomas E. Wilson Company. While Wilson primarily only focused on the meat-packing business, the Wilson Company continued to flourish and expand it’s product line. They began to make football, baseball, golf, and eventually basketball equipment. Today, Wilson is no longer involved in the meat-packing business, but their sports equipment line is some of the best in the world.
Future of Wilson Racquets
