After 170 years Still on the pulse of the times
On September 1, 1852, Franz Wertheim and 85 employees began to build “fireproof safes”. Then as now, Wertheim has been successfully involved in production of safes and banking facilities, nationally and internationally. To secure the market position and develop new business areas, Wertheim has continuously adapted its product range over the years as well as expanded its assortment of offerings. Today, the Wertheim Group of companies also produces bank and object furnishings in our own joinery in Uttendorf, and Commissioned Work has developed into an essential business area for the group. The diversity of state-of-the-art technologies characterizes the flexibility and technical know-how of this division. With great pride we look back at our past rich in tradition. With the polka “Feuerfest” commissioned by Franz Wertheim and composed by Josef Strauss in 1869 behind us, we Wertheimers will tackle the next decades…
