Founded by Adolf Würth in 1945, the Würth Group began as a two-person, family business in Germany specializing in assembly and fastening materials. Today, the $13 billion global wholesaler serves three million customers in more than 80 countries and employs upwards of 73,000 people.
Würth offers more than 125,000 products, ranging from screws, screw accessories and anchors to tools, chemical-technical products and personal protection equipment. The Allied Companies of the Würth Group provide products for DIY stores, material for electrical installations and other electronic components.
