We are celebrating over 60 years of WURO and quality tools with dedication.


Events to celebrate the company’s 50th anni­ver­sary took place on 27th and 28th May 2011 at the works in Freudenberg-Niederndorf.


Acquisition of a large-scale customer from Remscheid, combined with the use of the trademark ATHLET Quality Tools.


Acquisition of a nut driver blade producer from Remscheid.


As part of a gene­rational change, the company’s name was changed on 01.01.1995 and the sole pro­prietor­ship WURO-Werk­zeuge-Kunst­stoffe, Wilhelm Uebach became the firm WURO Wilhelm Uebach GmbH & Co. KG. A compe­titor in the Allen key field was taken over, resul­ting in a further expan­sion of the portfolio.


In response to changes in customer demand, the range of special and custo­mized tools was expanded.


Production was extended to cover hex key manufacturing.


On January 10th 1961, together with tool­maker Heinz Roesch, Wilhelm Uebach founded the com­pany “WURO-Werk­zeuge-Kunst­stoffe W. Uebach & Roesch”, in addition to his alrea­dy existing busi­ness inte­rests as a coal dealer and a buil­ding mate­rials supplier. The com­pany began produc­tion in the truck garage at his home and specia­lised in the produc­tion of screwdrivers.
