GFW (Groenewold Fur & Wool Co.) is a fur buying company experienced in American raccoon, coyote,  muskrat, red fox, grey fox, beaver, otter, mink, opossum and other wild furs. An inventory is usually carried in these items, with all sections, sizes, and qualities available. The heavy western raccoon and muskrat are our trademark. The bulk of our buying is direct from the producer with the remainder coming from small dealers outside our direct purchasing territory.  All prices are FOB Chicago, which prevents packing fees, commissions, and inland freight charges.


Quality control and continuity is our selling trademark.  Our aggressive presence in major markets makes GFW the premier market-maker. The GFW team is a worldwide network dealing in the purchase and sale of North American raw and dressed fur products, as well as North American greasy wool.  We are represented in all major fur-consuming nations.


If you are interested in any of our products, please contact us.  We can put together an offering via fax or email to promptly begin business.  In addition, you are always welcome to visit our facility to examine goods as well as to meet our professionals and discuss future business possibilities.
