We are a Family Business

Würth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Würth in 1945. Prof. Reinhold Würth, the present 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 globally operating trading group.

Today, more than 3 million customers all over the world trust in this family business to provide exceptional service and products.
