WE ARE A FAMILY BUSINESS
The foundation stone for the Würth Group was laid in 1945 by Adolf Würth. He sets up Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, a simple company selling screws and consisting of two men 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. Today 75 years later, the group generates sales of Euro 13.6 billion and has more than 77,800 workforce.
We owe it to Reinhold Würth that the Würth Group has a clear business orientation: It is marked by a strong brand policy, future-oriented product strategy, and closeness to the customer, 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 filled with life and developed further.
