Focke-Wulf Flugzeugbau AG was formed by Heinrich Focke and Georg Wulf on 1 January 1924 at Bremen.  In its early years, the company focused on light private and commercial transports.

Wulf was killed in 1927 in a test flight and by 1933 Focke was devoting his time to rotor aircraft.  Kurt Tank of BFW and Rohrbach was appointed designer and technical director.

Focke-Wulf expanded into training aircraft and produced Messerschmitt designs while developing more advanced aircraft.

After World War II, a new Focke-Wulf company was formed which merged with Weser in 1963 to become VFW.
