Würth takes social responsibility

This extremely short sentence taken from the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany acts as a tremendous driving force within the Würth Group. Because Article 14 (2) continues:


As a family business, Würth takes social responsibility based on this deep-rooted conviction. Würth is committed to a vibrant cultural landscape at the regional, national, and international level, rises to social challenges, facilitates education designed to meet the needs of the future, and recognizes individuals who improve how we all live together.

Art and culture give rise to fresh perspectives

“Art lets the soul breathe,” says Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Reinhold Würth, chairman of the supervisory board of the Würth Group. With this in mind, art and culture have been inextricably linked with Würth as a company from day one. They allow for an inspiring interplay with everyday working life.
The Würth Collection remains the focal point of all activities. Tt included more than 18,500 works of art at the end of 2022. The collection, assembled over a period of almost 60 years in parallel with the development of the global corporation, continues to develop with an eye to the future, enriched by a vast range of artistic, musical, and literary activities.
