Pre Con, Inc.
Our contract converting and manufacturing business was established in 1975 by Jerry Wauford. In addition to manufacturing, the company also owns about 450,000 sq. ft. of industrial and office space in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Pre Con, Inc. is the foundation company of what ultimately became the Wauford Group.
Our specialty fabrics company was formed in 2004, and produces Kovenex® and Pavenex®, which are flame- and heat-resistant fabrics that are also cut- and tear-resistant. They serve a wide range of applications, including protection for first responders and use in industrial gear and garments where heat- and fire-related protection is needed.
As a large user of temporary staffing, member companies of the Wauford Group were dissatisfied with the efforts of regional and national staffing companies. AdvantaStaff was formed with the client in mind, concentrating on pre-screening, training and fill-rate management to provide a strategic advantage to its clients.
Diversified Converters, Inc.
DCI was founded in 1990 as a contract converter for commercial non-wovens, and produces a variety of products. DCI also serves as a product development and converting center for its clients.
Founded in 2010, WestPointe is the source company of several related companies in the Wauford Group, including WestPointe GP, WestPointe Commercial and WestPointe Residential. These companies represent the Group's real estate development interests, which include prime retail, office and residential properties.
