The operational units of the Würth Group
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. . In the fiscal year 2022, the Würth Group generated sales of EUR 19.9 billion. A new record in sales.
From a two-man business to world market leader
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.
Multi-channel strategy as a key success factor
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.
