It were Agfa and Gevaert that merged.
Wolfen is the name of the place were Agfa's primary filmplant was located. Preceeding that merger the primary Agfa-company (located in East-Germany) and the new erected Agfa-company (located in West-Germany) split their trade and legal connections and the primary company gave itself a new brand name: Original Wolfen
There were companies that got rights to use the Agfacolor principle before WWII. The others were allowed by the surrender of Germany on Allied conditions to use freely Agfa patents. Amongs others this gave the freedom to evade Kodak patents.

I just saw in one of your photos, that you got ORWOcolor UT 16.
UT means: Umkehr-Tageslicht, thus Reversal-Daylight
16 means speed in DIN, that is 32ASA
1950's film Agfacolor ultra-k 40 ASA / fomachrome / ORWO color / kodacolor-x
Thanks the yes it had "Color Umkehr Film" on the side so I looked up Umkehr and the translation was a little strange but I assumed it meant "reversal" , but thanks for the confirmation!
And sorry for the misunderstanding of ORWO I only just read that info on the link given at the top and I read a lot and probably misremembered the info.
Ok we've made some progress, I guess I'll read through that info and see if I can come up with some viable color developer.
OH does any of this film require a hardener?
