Würth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Würth in 1945. Prof. Reinhold Würth, today’s Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Würth Group’s Family Trusts, took over the business at the age of 19 after his father had passed away and developed it further in the following years. Starting from the early years of the company in post-war Germany, he turned the former two-man business into a worldwide operating trading group.
We owe it to Reinhold Würth that the Würth Group has a clear business orientation: it is marked by a strong brand policy, a future-oriented product strategy, closeness to the customer, a clear quality offensive, thinking in terms of visions and not least by a strong corporate culture. Bettina Würth, Reinhold Würth’s daughter and Chairwoman of the Advisory Board together with the members of the Central Managing Board see to it that these values are lived out and developed further.
For over 70 years has the Würth brand been one of the leading quality brands for assembly technology. Through its clear focus on professional users and a strict orientation towards quality and service Würth has become a synonym for quality and reliability in over 80 countries.
With pioneering distribution and logistics solutions, Würth inspires over 3.9 million customers in trade, construction and industry all over the world and is always close them. As a family business, Würth supports the arts, sports and social projects with heart and passion.
Entrepreneurial activities mean future-oriented activities. As a family company, Würth has been dedicated to this principle ever since starting out.
Würth commitment - this, of course, applies to our core business, but extends to our customer orientation and beyond as a holistic approach. As a good citizen, we are involved in all sorts of corporate initiatives, support charitable organizations, and promote numerous projects in the fields of art and culture, research and science as well as education. And they are not all big, well-known projects. Often they are small initiatives which are not in the limelight. But that doesn´t make them any less important.
