Tradition and Change

Wurm has a long tradition. Founded in 1872, the family-owned business Wurm began as a saw-factory in Remscheid, a city known for its long tradition in the tool manufacturing industry. The original site of the early days of Wurm is still used as a production site for printed circuit boards today.
In the 1960s, the company started with the production of the first distribution boxes for construction sites - the beginnings of the present Wurm Schaltanlagenbau.
In the 1980s, the great-grandson of the company founder, Horst Peter Wurm, managed the company’s successful transition to the micro-electronics sector.
Since then, the company has continued to develop constantly. Today, Wurm Systeme is recognised as a leading provider of automation systems for refrigeration systems and the management of building services engineering in the German and European market.
In the field of remote data transmission, Wurm belongs to the pioneers in its industrial sector.
Today, of course, our system solutions for plant control and monitoring can also be easily used with mobile devices.
Accelerated development processes of the present are our daily incentive to find new solutions for our customers.
