德国亿万富翁死磕美国总统:特朗普在任一天,对美投资停止一天

David Meyer 2018年06月13日

伍尔特说他之所以对在美投资持保留态度,是因为美国“政策总体来说不明确”。

德国企业伍尔特集团是世界上最大的组装和紧固材料供应商之一,这个家族的大家长说,只要特朗普还是美国总统,伍尔特集团就不会再在美国进行投资。

莱茵哈德·伍尔特,这位德国著名的“螺丝大王”告诉《周日画报》(Bild am Sonntag),他“保证公司现阶段不会在美国投资了”。

“美国占我们年销售额的14%,价值18亿欧元(合21亿美元),但我不想再加大在美国的投入了。”伍尔特说,这也说明83岁高龄的他仍然能影响这家私营企业的政策。

伍尔特说他之所以对在美投资持保留态度,是因为美国“政策总体来说不明确”。“我说过,我们会等着,看特朗普总统在四年后能否连任”,他告诉《周日画报》,“他下台之时就是伍尔特回归之日。”

这位亿万富翁在说这话之前,特朗普总统才刚刚决定向欧盟、加拿大和墨西哥的钢铁和铝征收高额关税。根据美方的数据,德国占美国钢铁进口额的4%。只有略高于2%的进口铝来自德国。

特朗普还在争取把进口汽车关税提升至25%,他似乎对德国豪华汽车能在美国市场占有一席之地特别生气。德国是欧盟中向美国出口汽车最多的国家。

去年11月,伍尔特集团买下了纽约一家老牌建筑物料制造商温斯托克兄弟(Weinstock Bros),这是伍尔特工业北美分部在三年内进行的第5笔交易。伍尔特的一名发言人告诉《财富》杂志,公司目前在美国没有其它并购计划。(财富中文网)

One of the world’s biggest suppliers of assembly and fastening materials, Germany’s Würth Group, will not invest any more in the United States while President Donald Trump is in power, the patriarch of the Würth family has said.

Reinhold Würth, popularly known in Germany as the “Screw King,” told the Sunday newspaper Bild am Sonntag that he had “made sure we are no longer investing in the U.S. at the moment.”

“We make 14% of our annual sales there—€1.8 billion [$2.1 billion]—but I do not want to increase our engagement in America any further,” he said, explaining how he still made his presence felt at the privately-held company at the age of 83.

Würth said his reticence about further investment was based on the “general, uncertain political situation” in the U.S. “I said, we’ll wait and see if President Trump is re-elected in four years,” he told the paper. “Würth returns when he goes.”

The billionaire’s comments came just after President Trump imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the EU, Canada and Mexico. According to U.S. figures, Germany is the source of 4% of American steel imports. Just over 2% of U.S. aluminum imports come from Germany.

Trump is also pushing for 25% tariffs on car imports, and seems particularly angry about German luxury cars having a place on American roads. Germany is Europe’s biggest exporter of automobiles to the U.S.

Last November, the group bought Weinstock Bros, a venerable New York maker of supplies for the construction industry—the fifth transaction in three years for Würth Industry North America. A Würth spokesperson told Fortune that no additional acquisitions are currently planned in the U.S.
