Würth Ireland was founded in 1982 and started its operations in a small rented warehouse on Ballysimon Road, not far from the present site. Mr Martin Valk was the first Managing Director and the company’s first salesman. Initially the company focused on the Automotive sector and the Wood Division was established in 1985.
In 1986, the company moved from its rented accommodation to its newly purchased site. By now the company had grown to 29 employees, of which 15 were sales representatives. At the end of the year Würth Ireland had exceeded 1.0 million in sales turnover. In 1992, Würth Ireland took over responsibility for Wood sales in Northern Ireland (UK) from Winzer Würth Limited. Whilst in 1993 the remaining business for Automotive was transferred from Würth UK Limited, the Metal Division was started in 1992 with two sales representatives. In 1995 the company purchased three acres of adjoining land and built a new office complex of 900 sq. m. It also doubled the size of its previous warehouse.In February 1996, this new office and warehouse complex was officially opened by Mrs. Carmen Würth.
Continued growth throughout the nineties and into the new millennium has made Würth Ireland one of the top 1000 companies in the country.
Würth Ireland continues to operate in the fields of Automotive, Wood, Metal and Construction offering a range of 8,000 articles direct from the logistics centre in Limerick whilst offering the complete Würth range of articles through direct shipment from Germany. The continued expansion led the company to open 10 shops throughout Ireland, of which 3 are based in the capital city of Dublin.
Our staff members are our key asset and the company therefore tried to make the working environment a vibrant, efficient and enjoyable place to work and grow. With the right people and the right attitude alongside our brand, quality, service and professionalism, Würth Ireland will continue to grow and become the market leader in assembly products.
