Jena, March 30, 2011 – The Würth Group, the world’s number one supplier of assembly and fixing materials, is deploying Intershop’s Enfinity Suite software across the Group as its e-commerce platform.
With major customers in France having already benefited from the new solution, a worldwide rollout is planned, commencing with migration of the German subsidiary’s custom solution to the Enfinity Suite. Key factors in favor of the Intershop platform were its modularity and outstanding internationalization capability.

Intershop Management Board member Dr. Ludger Vogt is also delighted: “By choosing Intershop, the Würth Group has laid the best possible foundations for achieving its ambitious global e-commerce goals. We look forward to forging a lasting partnership that will benefit not only from Enfinity Suite but also from our expertise in online marketing and retailing.”
