Social commitment

Commitment beyond the boundaries of company

Entrepreneurial action means future-oriented action. As a family business, the Würth Group as well as the management of Würth Industrie Service has been committed to this principle ever since its early years. We are involved in all sorts of corporate initiatives, support charitable organizations, and promote numerous projects in the fields of arts and culture, research and science as well as education.

Experience arts and culture up close and personal

Würth Industrie Service focuses on creative potential. Potential is just as important for guaranteeing unique works in the field of arts as it is for pioneering innovations in a successful company. Because the progress starts, where the creativity can thrive. As a company which operates globally and acts responsibly, it goes without saying that we act upon this conviction. Therefore, we work together with artists involved in arts and culture based on long-term partnerships and promote cultural education programmes in the company and outside. We thus contribute to enriching lives of as many people as possible – employees as well as the residents of Main-Tauber valley – by promoting artistic ideas.
