Product range

The pre-requisite for professional industrial C-Parts handling: A product range with more than 1,100,000 items. From classic connection and fastening technology, norm and standard parts, auxiliary and operating materials such as personal protective equipment and chemical-technical products to special parts as per design which is in form of individual service concept tailored to specific requirements. In our market, it is crucial to have a product range that is characterised by variety and quality and to keep an eye on customer requirements. Our product range is growing with the needs of our customers and with new branches opening up. We enable our customer to consolidate suppliers and thus save costs and time with our broad product range, paired with flexibility in creating special items.

Success factor Systems Würth Industrie Service

Systems

Automated. Direct. Safe. Customised. For each industry. For all purposes. For every need of the customer. Würth Industrie Service has evolved from being supplier of fasteners to being holistic C-Parts partner integrated in the procedural landscape of the industry. The major contributing factor in this development are our “systems" in form of supply concepts, supplementary services relating to our extensive product portfolio. An additional value in form of optimised process can be offered to the customer by using these systems, for e.g. through simplified procurement solutions, fully automated replenishment, through optimised dispensing/storage or improved digital data and information flow.

The optimum delivery chain

One essential element for the optimum delivery chain is the alignment of direct supply to all our customers in Europe through centralised logistics. Thus, our industry customers can achieve maximum supplier consolidation and reduce flows of goods as well as avoid freight-intensive small shipments. We can ensure the capacities of a consolidated, qualified delivery chain, a high level of service and an efficient use of storage capacities only by ensuring continuous development for our delivery partners and establishing long-term partnerships. Therefore, it is necessary to continuously optimise the delivery chain to inspire our customers.

Innovations at Würth Industrie Service

Innovations

Innovations for the production of tomorrow – To compete in the global market, productions constantly face new challenges. In the age of Industry 4.0, intelligent, self-organising, networked systems are in demand. Starting from innovative Kanban technologies about electronic solutions for fast, independent ordering of production material to new vending machine technologies. As a result of closely collaborating with research and industry we are aware of the problems faced by manufacturing companies and thus handle innovations, which evolve together with the world of manufacturing and its increasing demands. Customer needs drive innovations forward. We come up with new ideas frequently from daily work with our customers.

Digitalisation

The focus is increasingly on networking beyond the boundaries of the company. In the course of global nature of competition, shorter product life cycles and high pace of innovation, digital and transparent processes and solutions are essential for the productivity of the customers. In order to avoid frictional losses in digitalised value-added chains and to be able to operate efficiently in today’s world, humans should interact with machines and machines with machines. In the example of Würth Industrie Service, these are intelligent bins and delivery systems, RFID-supported Kanban systems as well as the ORSYmat vending machines with the function to automatically reorder. Our customers are guaranteed complete transparency in C-Parts management via WIS-portal.

Corporate and leadership culture

A trusting set of basic values and management culture associated with it are crucial today for the success of the company and will be even more so in the future. They are not only the basis to convince new colleagues about our company, to retain them for a long-term but also are the basis for earning trust of customers and other business partners. Our corporate and leadership culture is noticeably different from that of other companies. It follows a standardised general line, which is still characterised by trust, modesty and humbleness, but also by motivation, willingness to learn and simply by tremendous pleasure in work and success.

Focus on people

People buy from people. For this reason, the determination to succeed, an optimistic attitude, commitment, reliability, resilience, team spirit, respect and trust are the basic characteristics which sets apart our way of working together and collaborating with our customers. Our employees also focus on the people while working. The word “Thank you” is especially important while dealing with each other. Reconciling work and family life as well as including people with disabilities is also a major factor for us. Treating people with dignity is of utmost importance to us.
