We are a family business – Local in every sense.
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, generating in excess of EUR 10 billion in the business year of 2014. Today, the Würth Group has more than 400 companies serving the markets in over 80 countries.
In the core business, the Würth Line, the product range for craft and industry comprises over 100,000 products: from screws, screw accessories and anchors to tools, chemical-technical products and protective equipment. The Allied Companies of the Würth Group, which either operate in business areas adjacent to the core business or in diversified business areas, round off the range by offering products for DIY stores, material for electrical installations, electronic components (e.g. circuit boards) as well as financial services.
The Würth name stands for high product quality and excellent service. Our unique corporate philosophy and shared values dictate our daily activities which underlie the company’s longstanding success, be it in Germany, the birthplace of the Würth company, or in any of its more than 400 companies all over the globe.
Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth set the tone for the Würth Group’s clear business objectives:
- Strong Brand Policy
- Future-Oriented Product Strategy
- Customer Relationship Development
- Clear Quality Offensive
- Visionary Mindset
- Strong Corporate Culture
Bettina Wurth, Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth’s daughter and Chairwoman of the Advisory Board, together with the members of the Central Managing Board, ensure that these values are followed closely in every Würth company and developed further.
