Be it the Panama Canal or the tallest wooden house in the world, be it a Ferris wheel or luxury towers on the Persian Gulf – the fastening products used to hold them all together are supplied by Würth.
OH, HOW BEAUTIFUL PANAMA IS!
Last year, new sluices were installed in the Panama Canal. Thanks to the collaboration between Würth’s customer Bosch Rexroth, who supplied 158 hydraulic pumps, together with further experts from around the world, considerably larger cruise ships and container ships can now pass through the famed waterway between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean.
TWICE THE LUXURY
At first glance, it seems impossible: despite the seemingly smooth glass surface of the Park Tower in Dubai, each apartment and office is supposedly outfitted with a spacious balcony. A second glance reveals the recesses, whose intelligent design grants tenants a fantastic view of the heart of the Dubai International Finance Center. The real-estate company Damac built the extraordinary towers there – using Würth’s expanding foam.
One building, 18 floors, 400 students – sounds like your ordinary student dormitory. In reality, it is far from it. The high-rise on the Vancouver campus (University of British Colombia) provides its residents with exclusively wooden living quarters, which are held together by ASSY® screws manufactured by Würth’s subsidiary SWG Production in Waldenburg, Germany. At a height of 53 meters, this is currently the tallest wooden building in the world.
ENJOY THE VIEW FROM ABOVE
Würth is part of one of the tallest panorama Ferris wheels in Europe: from the gondolas, you can see not only the far-reaching landscape but also the snap-fits supplied by Inox Mare, a Würth Group company. The Ferris wheel measures roughly 60 meters in height, is originally from the Netherlands and has already appeared in Paris, Lyon, Berlin, Bonn, Hongkong, and Rimini.
