History

The Würth Group is the life's work of Professor Reinhold Würth, and one of the outstanding business success stories in post-war German history. Since 1954, the time of rebuilding after the Second World War, he has been able to turn the two-man business of his father’s into a worldwide active group of companies with about 400 companies in 84 countries today.

The core business of the Würth Group is the global trade of fixing and assembly materials. Competence, quality and customer service form the foundation of our philosophy. Würth Germany's range of products for trade and industry now numbers more than 100,000 for the assembly professional. Over five decades Prof. Dr. Reinhold Würth has led the two-man operation, which he took over after the death of his father in 1954, to become among the largest trading companies in Germany.

The requirements of over 3 million customers is always a challenge for Würth employees but having over 60,000 employees, half of which are sales representatives, guarantees that we remain close to our customers and can thus provide competent advice and fast delivery.

Würth Ireland was established as a subsidiary of the Würth Group in 1982 in Limerick. We offer a range of 8,000 products and employ 125 people of which 85 are sales representatives. We provide our customers with a higher level of personal attention through our nationwide network of sales representatives. This is to ensure that we have a greater understanding of your needs hence enabling us to offer you the most cost efficient solution.

Together, the team of employees strive to be a valued partner in our customers’ businesses and look forward to long and rewarding relationships with them all.
