Our History

From the beginning in 1942 till now.

Originally named “Gebrüder Reinfurt” in 1942 after the founding brothers, Eugene and Hugo Reinfurt, our company was later re-organized as a limited partnership (in Germany: GmbH & Co. KG) and named “Gebrüder Reinfurt Würzburg”, or GRW.

From the founding of our company in Würzburg to the acquisitions of our Rimpar and Czech Republic manufacturing facilities and two United States marketing subsidiary, our company has grown from a workforce of 12 to 15 people to over 500.
