Wurth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Wurth in 1945. Prof. Reinhold Wurth, today’s Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Wurth Group’s Family Trusts, took over the business at the age of 19 after his father had passed away. Starting from the early years of the company in post-war Germany, he turned the former two-man business into a worldwide operating trading group. This ambitious development has been accompanied by the effort to form a corporate culture based on high regard for the employees and the willingness to serve the customer as best as possible.
