As a family business with a strong corporate culture, the Würth Group is very well-positioned to achieve this goal. Managing with a vision, linked to a strict orientation towards excellent performance and great respect for the employees’ achievements, has been a characteristic feature of the company since its inception and is in no small part thanks to Reinhold Würth’s leadership. Already in the early years, the company aimed to approach customers actively instead of waiting for them to come.
“Seeing behind the mountains and around the bend”, leaving the beaten track behind to find potential for optimization is one of the basic rules of the company that was formulated by Reinhold Würth. Bettina Würth, the daughter of Reinhold Würth, is keeping up this tradition as the Chairwoman of the Advisory Board of the Würth Group.
Exemplary for the visionary and strategic thinking in the Würth Group is the “Vision 2000”, which Reinhold Würth had developed in 1987: The sales volume of the Würth Group amounted to EUR 700 million in that year. The aim was to attain a sales volume of EUR five billion by the turn of the millennium. Indeed did the company succeed in reaching exactly this target in the business year 2000.
True to its motto “Quality beats price,” Würth is positioned at the very top of the quality spectrum: We do not only offer top-notch quality when it comes to our products, but also for our services.
