Global Sourcing

Global Sourcing

Würth Industry’s approach to global sourcing is focused on total cost of ownership; we follow these very important principles: conduct ethical negotiations, clearly communicate our uncompromising attention to quality, drive continuous supplier improvement and leverage Würth’s global purchasing volume.

Ethical negotiations form the foundation of Würth’s relationships with our suppliers. We recognize that our word is vitally important in building long-standing, mutually beneficial relationships. We strive in all of our correspondence to communicate clearly the short-term requirement along with the long-term opportunity to our suppliers--transparency is paramount.


Würth has the largest Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE) network in the fastener industry ready to audit, qualify and develop suppliers in any location around the world. Whether our supplier is located in Cleveland, Guangzhou, Delhi, Frankfort or any other location, we have a SQE located nearby. Our SQE’s prevent both our customers and Würth from experiencing quality related issues.

The Würth Group is the world’s largest fastener company; we leverage our global purchasing volumes to assure we are providing the most competitive total cost basis to our customers. This is achieved by leveraging information across the entire Würth Group and presenting tremendous growth opportunities to our suppliers.
