We are a family business
Today, more than three million customers worldwide put their trust in Würth. Behind the long-term success of the Würth Group are people and a very special corporate philosophy. Würth is a family business founded in 1945 by Adolf Würth.
The current Chairman of the Group’s Supervisory Board, Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth, took over and built up the company from the age of 19 after the death of his father Adolf. Starting from the post-war period of reconstruction, he developed the two-person business into a global trading group.
It is to Reinhold Würth's credit that the Würth Group is positioned with such clear focus: This includes a strong brand policy, a forward-looking product strategy, customer proximity, a clear quality initiative, thinking in terms of vision and, last but not least, a strong corporate culture. Bettina Würth, the daughter of Reinhold Würth, as Chair of the Advisory Board, and the Group Management ensure that these values are a living reality and further developed.
