We are a family business
Today, 3 million customers from all over the world place their trust in Würth. Dedicated employees and a very special corporate philosophy are the driving forces of the long-standing success enjoyed by the Würth Group. Würth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Würth in 1945. Prof. Reinhold Würth, current 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. Starting in the early years of the company in post-war Germany, he turned the former two-man business into a worldwide operating trading group.
