Opening of the Würth Innovation Center

The official opening ceremony of the “Reinhold Würth Innovation Center Curio” took place on September 28, 2022.

The center is located at the headquarters of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG in Künzelsau, Baden-Württemberg.

In 2017, Würth, world market leader in the development, production and sale of assembly and fastening materials, had announced a realization competition for the Innovation Center, which OBERMEYER was able to win. The planning contract followed.

The construction project with an investment volume of around 75 million euros provides state-of-the-art laboratories, workplaces and workshops on around 15,500 square meters for the company’s own research and development.

Innovative is not only what is being developed in the new research building. Innovative is also the polygonal and expressive form of the new building designed by OBERMEYER. The design envisaged two complementary buildings which are in dialogue with each other and formulate an attractive square situation towards the adjacent street.

The individual functional areas are arranged in a triangular shape around a common inner courtyard, which functions as a central access element for the public and non-public areas.

The two-story annex, which is connected to the main building via a glass passageway, houses one of the world’s most efficient test centers for fastening technology with its own certified dowel laboratory.
