The Würth Group is the global market leader in the development, production, and sale of fastening and assembly materials. More than 400 companies operating over 2,500 branch offices and shops in more than 80 countries form part of this global family business, which hails from the German town of Künzelsau.
The Würth Group is divided into two operational units: The Würth Line, on the one hand, specializes in the production of fastening and assembly materials for customers in the skilled trades and the industry. Other trading and production companies, known as the Allied Companies, operate in related business areas, ranging from electrical wholesaling and electronics to financial services. The Group achieved sales of EUR 19.95 billion in the 2022 fiscal year.
The wholesaling business for screws and bolts, established by Adolf Würth with only two employees in 1945, has evolved into a globally operating group with more than 85,000 employees, over 43,000 of whom work directly with customers everyday through the Group’s different sales channels. More than four million customers place their trust in the high-quality products and the comprehensive services that extend far beyond the actual products.
The positive development of the Group is based on its strategic path toward digitalization combined with its multi-channel strategy. The online shop, the Würth App, and e-procurement solutions, complemented by the dense network of shops, constitute the most important building blocks of this strategy. Other success factors include modern logistics, product innovations, and related services. The international and decentralized structure, as well as the Würth Group’s diversification across various industries, help ensure the Group’s solid footing.
Würth’s corporate culture is characterized by values such as openness, gratitude, respect, curiosity, responsibility, humility, and modesty. These values are the cornerstones of Würth’s success and serve as the basis for all collaboration, be it with co-workers, business partners, or customers. The Würth Group’s actions are geared toward sustained corporate success. The company has always been committed to supporting social and cultural projects, going beyond its mere economic responsibilities.
