We are a Family Business
Wurth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Würth in 1945. Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. 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.
Over 3 million customers all over the world trust in Würth today. The human touch, a very strong focus on customer satisfaction, and a very special corporate philosophy are the driving forces of the long-standing success enjoyed by the Würth Group.
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

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.
