We are celebrating our 25th anniversary!

Würth Industrie Service has been supporting industrial customers as a holistic C-Parts partner since 25 years, by making sure that they have the right parts at the right time, in the right quantity, at the right place – starting from screws, washers and nuts to occupational safety products to special parts, we offer our customers over 1.4 million different items. Our story as an independent subsidiary of the Würth Group started with just 80 employees on an abandoned 120-hectare military site in Bad Mergentheim, which is now known as Würth Industrial Park. Now exactly 25 years later, over 1,800 employees in Germany and around 6,800 employees across the world are forging the path of our continued success.

Setting up a company with 80 employees on 120 hectares was unimaginable for many!

“Würth Group as well as Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth, the current Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Würth Group, are defined by vision and courage since the very beginning. When Würth Industrie Service was founded in 1999 and we occupied an area of 120 hectares with 80 employees, many called us crazy – looking back, the decision to move to Drillberg, Bad Mergentheim proved to be a guarantee of success. Without Prof. Reinhold Würth, who supported our vision strongly since the very beginning, we would not have been where we are today.”

Rainer Bürkert, Member of the Central Managing Board of the Würth Group

Martin Jauss

Over 1,800 dedicated employees are the basis of our success story.

“In the last 25 years, Würth Industrie Service has continuously developed itself further and has become what it is today – the European market leader in supply of small parts to industrial customers. Together, we have forged more than 20,000 partnerships with customers across entire Europe. We are thankful for the partnership-based cooperation with our customers and our suppliers, for the openness and above all for the commitment of our employees! Only because of this we are the market leader today.”
