As one of the most diverse international suppliers of both domestic and industrial accessories – with products ranging from screws, fixtures and fittings to tools, electronics and automotive components – the trading firm has been rapidly expanding its personal protective equipment (PPE) ranges in recent years, focusing on Small and Medium Enterprise
In 2011, it will introduce the new Cut Level 5 (CL5) glove featuring Dyneema®, the world strongest fiber™. Gloves made from Dyneema® represent the best in cut resistance performance while being light and comfortable for the wearer. The CL5 glove will be launched in Germany, where Würth has established more than 320 of its own shops over the past few years.
