FÖRCH – Group
Welcome to FÖRCH. International orientation and yet regional roots. Most advanced with regard to technology but down to earth at the core. Our strength is based in the linking of these contrasts.
The story begins in 1963 – Theo Förch founded a company in Neuenstadt-Kochertürn, Germany. With assiduity, foresight and a feeling for the needs of his customers he leads the company to a stately size. Today, more than 50 years later, FÖRCH is one of the leading direct selling companies for workshop, installation and fastening products for trade and industrial companies. With all the success, however we have never lost our down-to earth grounding.
Our sales representatives speak your language – and they are always happy to take time for you. In order that you can concentrate on the main things, FÖRCH has quite a lot up his sleeve – or in his stock – about 70.000 articles for example. Our product range includes consumables, tools, workshop chemicals, workshop requirements, diamond equipment, construction chemicals, fasteners, pipe insulation, roof ventilation and many others more.
Internationally successful. Healthy growth and always focused on the customer needs. The story of FÖRCH shows that international orientation and down-to-earth grounding are not opposites but the basis of its success.
Carefully and with respect to the national and international individual characteristics – this is the principle according to which we open up new markets and inspire customers all over the world. 24 sales offices only in Germany, 18 subsidiaries, as well as 2.400 employees (more than 1.500 working as sales representatives) are today available to service trade and industrial companies in more than 50 countries. Nowadays the annual turnover is approximately 320 million Euros. This is something we are really happy about – and this also gives us a lot of motivation to continue on this path – down-to-earth and personal – as always.

Logistics that works. A business which accepts 40,000 customer order requests daily, needs nimble hands with a high logistics capability.
To ensure everything runs smoothly all cogs must mesh perfectly and precisely – as this is the case in the ultra-modern FÖRCH Logistics and Distribution Center, its high-tech picking warehouses that are unrivalled with its more than 100,000 containers controlled fully automatically at any time. Operating units guide them at cyberspeed and one of 70,000 articles ends up shortly afterwards just where it is supposed to – just as it should be! Best technology that serves the people and not vice versa. This saves time, avoids stress and reduces costs at the end – for all of us, FÖRCH partners and every single customer.
Fully automated, for most rapid dispatch and delivery.
Controlled by hand, reliably and safely on its way to the customer.
Perfect Handling. Almost unbelievable what is going on every day in the FĂ–RCH Logistics Center in NeuenstadtKochertĂźrn, Germany. Altogether 78,000 containers are waiting in our small parts warehouse for articles to be taken out and sent to you as fast as possible.
10,000 parcels, 300 freight deliveries and 40,000 items per day speak for themselves and for absolute perfection when it comes to processes, technique and employees. With an average order lead time of 20 min. this can be hardly done any better and any faster.

Handcraft needs hand work. C-Parts Management with FÖRCH. In times of global competition all company sectors must aim for maximum efficiency – especially the purchasing.
At FÖRCH we made the necessary arrangements to allow your purchasing department to work as economical, simple and well-arranged as possible. Therefore we see ourselves not only as a simple supplier for different products but as a crosssector provider for overall, individual and modular systematic solutions around everything that is called C-parts. There is a large potential for efficiency and productivity increases in the procurement of small parts, DIN- and standard parts, workshop chemicals, consumables, as well as drills, grinding material and tools, as those goods have a low value but by the enormous proportion of the total procurement volume, they create significant process costs in the purchasing department – especially in case of frequent order transactions. Due to the large discrepancy between the value of goods and the process costs, it is important to optimize the purchasing processes. C-parts management should be a strategic subject in the hands of the management to balance an eventual mismatch between administration or process costs and the actual value of the article. The right balance between merchandise value and acquisition costs is crucial for a successful C-parts management in order to use the existing savings potential.
Our flexible services extend â€“ according to what you want â€“ from providing advice and assistance up to the complete takeover of your preferred procurement process. One of the main components of the C-parts management is our variable ordering system VARO, especially conceived for this service in order to support perfectly the handling of C-parts. And you can fully concentrate on your core business.

VARO. Optimally organized in no time. Each constant success is accompanied by different variables.
FÖRCH's VARO-system (abbreviation for VARiable Ordering system) stands for a simple storage and supply system within your company. You can adjust it flexibly with regard to size and storage type to the requirements of each individual company or workshop structure – independent of your sector of activity or your company size. The VARO-system consists of special elements that can be combined in a demand-and-consumption optimized storage system. And what is best: you don’t have to buy your VARO-shelf system but you rent it at low rates. As long as you like, as many as you like and as fast as you like.
