Company history of the Wirtgen Group
Reinhard Wirtgen founded the company in 1961 as a haulage company. At the beginning he carried out small transport orders as a one-man company. At the same time, he developed concrete breakers for road construction.
About 10 years later, the Wirtgen company began building road milling machines. The number of employees had now grown to over 150. At the end of the 1970s, cold milling machines were used as an innovation in addition to the tried and tested hot milling machines, which were soon sold throughout Europe.
In 1997, Reinhard Wirtgen died in a car accident, so his two sons Jürgen and Stefan Wirtgen took over management of the company.
Through the purchase of the companies Hamm, Voegele, Kleemann and Benninghoven, the company became the Wirtgen Group and thus the world market leader in the field of road construction.
In addition to the main plant in Windhagen in Germany, Wirtgen has other production facilities in India, Brazil and China.
The Wirtgen Group has been part of the agricultural machinery manufacturer John Deere since the end of 2017. It is therefore no longer owned by the Wirtgen family, who have completely withdrawn from the company.
