Our allied companies – Group companies that are adjacent to the core business or operate in diversified business areas – supplement our product range with products for hardware and DIY stores, electrical installation materials, electronic components (e.g. printed circuit boards) and financial services.
More than three million customers worldwide now place their trust in Würth. The long-standing success of the Würth Group is based on people and a very particular corporate philosophy. Würth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Würth in 1945. The current Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Würth Group's Family Trusts, Prof. Reinhold Würth, took over the company at the age of 19 and built it up after the death of his father Adolf. Starting in the post-war years, he developed the then two-man business into a globally active trading group.
It is thanks to Reinhold Würth that the Würth Group is very clear in its orientation: this includes a strong brand policy, a future-oriented product strategy, customer proximity, an exceptional quality drive, visionary thinking and, last but not least, a vigorous corporate culture. Bettina Würth, Reinhold Würth's daughter, chairs the Advisory Board and is a Group Executive. She ensures that these values are lived and further enhanced.
