Report by news agency dapd concerning Group headquarters is a hoax

Künzelsau/Rorschach. This morning, the news agency dapd reported: “In the future, the Würth Group, which has been based in the village of Künzelsau in Baden-Wurttemberg, will be managed from Switzerland.” This statement is wrong.

The correct position of the Würth Group is as follows: At the end of 2008, the Würth Group decided to establish an additional head office in Switzerland. That is why, as of 01 January 2009, the Würth Group’s Central Managing Board is not only based in Künzelsau (Germany), but also in Rorschach. This will not lead to any changes in the day-to-day operations in Künzelsau and in Germany as a whole.
