A strong global team

Every machine, every invention and every pioneering technology has been brought about by individuals: visionaries, engineers, technicians and users, all united in their joint effort. Their ideas and their commitment have made us what we are today.

Our success story began in November 1961 when 20-year-old Reinhard Wirtgen took his first tentative steps into the world of road construction with a concrete breaking machine. Now, more than 50 years later, his one-man firm has grown into a global leader for construction machinery with over 7,500 employees throughout the world.

Then as now, we owe our company's strength, stability and success to our employees. In all four corners of the globe, they strive to achieve our common goal — namely to develop the very best machines for road and mineral technologies — and thus assure our customers' success on job sites around the world.
