Dear Valued Customer


 

Know Your Wurth



What an unprecedented year this has been.
We at Wurth have seen our partnership with you; our customers, strengthen and grow even through these trying times. It has been a journey that has shown us that quality, agility and resilience would be the only way to make it through such difficult times and we have been inspired by your commitment to your businesses and our country. This is the year we celebrated the 50th anniversary of Wurth South Africa. We were certain it would be memorable, but we could have never imagined that it would be for the reasons that we have seen locally and globally. With this in mind, we would like to share with you the incredible journey that we have had in South Africa over the past 50 years.
 

In The Beginning



It all began on the 20th March 1970, when Wurth SA, formerly known as Wurth Screws and Fasteners opened its doors in South Africa. With only four employees at the time, this was the first Wurth company to open outside of Europe. At the time, Wurth Screws and Fasteners annual sales closed at R20 100.
 

Time For Change And Growth



15 years later, Würth Screws and Fasteners was renamed as Würth South Africa (Pty) Ltd and in 1985, Wurth South Africa relocated from Fishers Hill in Germiston to the Old Mutual Business Park in Isando. 20 March 2010 marked Wurth South Africa’s 40th Anniversary in the country. Due to the growth of the company, in 2015 Wurth South Africa relocated once again to a bigger premise in Plumbago Business Park in Kempton Park.

A Force To Be Reckoned With



Today, Wurth South Africa services over 25 000 customers across South Africa, with more than 270 Sales Representatives, servicing the Automotive, Cargo, Metal, Wood and Construction Industries. In the year 2020, Wurth South Africa celebrates its 50th Anniversary in South Africa.
