Würth in the World Markets

Competence, Quality and Closeness to the Customer.
Building up the Würth Group is the life’s work of Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth and it is one of the success stories in German economic history. In 1945, the parent company of the Group, Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, was founded by Adolf Würth. After the early death of his father in 1954, Reinhold Würth, today’s Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Würth Group's Family Trusts, took over the company. Starting from the early years of the company in postwar Germany, he has turned the former two-man business into a trading group operating worldwide with about 400 companies in 80 countries and approximately 65,000 employees.

The core business of the Wurth group is the global trade with connecting and assembly technology that is implemented through an international network of group companies. Our allied companies that belong to the Wurth in terms of capital but trade under other names work on the business fields related to those of the Wurth line as regards their products and market.
