Tribute to the positive long-term co-operation

Reinhold Würth Receives Golden Pin of Honor of the Craft

Schwäbisch Hall. Professor Reinhold Würth, Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Würth Group was presented the Golden Honor Pin of the Heilbronn-Franken Chamber of Handicraft in Schwäbisch Hall on Thursday, 3 February 2005. With this award, the craft honors the long-term co-operation with Adolf Würth GmbH in Künzelsau, which has committed itself for many years to the training and further training of craftspeople.

This partnership is supported by the strong personal commitment of Professor Reinhold Würth. In his eulogy, the president of the Chamber of Handicraft Thilo Bräuninger called the financial support of the Chamber in the establishment of a center for renewable energies a climax of the co-operation. The Würth solar tower in front of the training and technology center of the Chamber of Handicraft will be kept at a state-of-the-art technological level for three decades. In other areas, the Chamber also co-operates with the Würth company, for instance, in the field of fastening technology. “Reinhold Würth”, Bräuninger says, “has remained a man of the region - down to earth and modest."

Reinhold Würth received the award "in gratefulness knowing that I owe it to my 48,000 employees." The honor pin was bestowed on Mr. Würth on the occasion of the 60th birthday of Gerhard Pfander, chief managing director of the Heilbronn Chamber of Handicraft.
