Reinhard Wirtgen founded the company in 1961 as a trucking company. Initially, as a one-man company, he carried out small transport orders. In parallel, he developed concrete smasher for road construction.
About 10 years later Wirtgen started building road milling machines. Meanwhile, the number of employees had grown to over 150. At the end of the 1970s, as an innovation, in addition to the tried-and-tested hot milling machines, cold milling machines were also used, which were soon sold throughout Europe.
In 1997, Reinhard Wirtgen crashed in a car accident, so that his two sons Jürgen and Stefan Wirtgen took over the management of the company.
With the acquisition of the companies Hamm, Vögele, 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 home plant in Windhagen in Germany, Wirtgen has further production sites in India, Brazil and China.
Since the end of 2017, the Wirtgen Group has belonged to the agricultural machinery manufacturer John Deere. It is therefore no longer in the possession of the Wirtgen family, which has completely withdrawn from the company.
