In 1966 young Horst Kürvers founded the company in Düsseldorf, Germany. At those times Düsseldorf was not only already famous for excellent beer breweries but also known to be the “Schreibtisch des Ruhrgebiets” (working desk of the Rhine Ruhr area). Major steel companies decided to establish their headquarters in Düsseldorf. Horst started buying and selling small lots of piping equipment. Driven by his entrepreneural spirit Horst identified the opportunity to offer his clients not only bundled products but also a broad service package that ensured to deliver the right quality at the right time. Horst visited manufacturers around the world and established long-term relationships to first-class producers of pipes, fittings and flanges. It did not take long that his reputation to provide reliable material services, even when things got complicated attracted also major petrochemical clients.
Kürvers headquarters is still to be found in Düsseldorf, Germany. And today Kürvers provides services worldwide through all its branches, international representatives and agents in major centers of commerce. Our regional project teams have access to all resources of the Kürvers group with the help of a modern ERP system.
