As a family owned business, Hohulin has worked in the fencing industry for over 100 years. Founded in 1897 by Sam, Tim, and John Hohulin, sons of Gottlieb Hohulin, a German immigrant and weaver of fine jacquard fabrics, we are credited as being the first to commercially manufacture chain link fence fabric in the United States. On April 27, 1897, Hohulin filled their first fence order for 396 feet of 48 high fence with one gate.
The Hohulin brothers were also inventors, obtaining four patents for fencing products, including one for a special steel post for chain link fence in 1904. They also developed and built some of the first overhead slide gate systems in the Midwest. Today, Wayne Moses, President of Hohulin and Randy Finley, Vice President, ensure the same quality products and commitment to service the company was founded upon. This long-standing history is why you can count on Hohulin Fence to provide the highest level of satisfaction and service.
