On course for further growth

Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG can look back on a pleasing year 2018 and continue the growth of the past years. The supplier of modular C-parts solutions for manufacturing industrial customers increased its sales in 2018 by 12.5 percent to a record value of 567.7 million euros.

Digitization plays a central role in this: "Digitization enables us to automate recurring manual activities with the aim of concentrating capacities on our customers' core purchasing and procurement tasks. In the digital age, however, people continue to play a central role and can, for example, devote more time to personal communication and solving complex logistical challenges. There is more than enough of that," says Rainer Bürkert, Business Unit Manager of the Würth Group.

Compared to the previous year, the number of employees rose by 10 percent to a total of 1,639 in 2018. Training and further education continue to be a central topic. In almost every specialist area, there is the possibility of taking part in various training measures on a daily basis and of obtaining first-hand knowledge from employees for employees. Here, too, investments were made in digitization and the range of services was supplemented by online training courses and eLearning measures.

The growth course requires investments in the company's location and thus in the most modern logistics centre for industrial supplies in Europe. In 2018, EUR 43.28 million was invested in the future of the Würth Industrial Park. Among other things, construction work began on the extension of the high-bay warehouse by an additional 39,000 parking spaces and on the expansion of the OSR shuttle warehouse. Further investments are planned in buildings, technologies such as open shuttles as driverless transport systems, picking and palletizing robots as well as storage capacities, so that an increase to more than 1,000,000 storage spaces can be expected by 2020. To date, a total of 270 million euros has been invested in the site and the technologies.

The Würth Industrial Network (WINWORK) also showed a positive development in 2018. This international network of industrial companies in 40 countries generated sales of EUR 1.617 billion worldwide in the past business year.
