We are a family business – Local in every sense.
People and a very special corporate philosophy are the driving forces of the long-standing success enjoyed by the Wurth Group.
Wurth is a family business that was founded by Adolf Wurth in 1945. Prof. Reinhold Wurth, today’s Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Wurth Group’s Family Trusts, took over the business at the tender age of 19 after his father had passed away and developed it further in to the business that we know and love today. Starting from the early years of the company in post-war Germany, he turned the former two-man business into a dynamic, worldwide operating trading group, generating in excess of EUR 11 billion in the business year of 2015.
From humble beginnings both internationally and locally, Wurth Australia strives to be a leader in its field. June 1982 saw the commencement of operations in a small office located in Braeside, Victoria – with a handful of motivated staff the business focused on delivering high quality products and service to a small number of customers throughout Victoria.
With rapid expansion, several office moves, industry diversification and additional distribution centres, Wurth Australia now proudly employ in excess of 550 people servicing our growing customer base of 46,000. Compared to early days of operation, Wurth Australia now operates in all areas of Australia, from remote regional areas to metropolitan centres.
