Würth Elektronik has opened a Belgian branch. From Turnhout, supported by three back-office employees, five technical field staffers are servicing electronics developers and manufacturers throughout Belgium and Luxembourg. Components and samples are supplied from the electronics specialist’s warehouses in Germany and France within 24 hours.

Newly opened Würth Elektronik België is headed by country manager Dimitri Verhaert (second from the left).

Würth has been active in Belgium with local employees since 2006. This is now followed by the conversion into a separate national company. “The foundation of the new company is a logical step in the positive development of the group in Benelux. This creates the basis for further growth,” says group CEO Thomas Schrott. The country manager is Dimitri Verhaert, who established Würth in the Belgian market in 2006.
