Shareholder, Advisory Board and Management of the TurckHolding companies want to sustainably strengthen the international growth of the Group and prepare the company for the challenges of the future. The core of the activities for optimizing the corporate structure is the far-reaching differentiation within the group in the fields of automation technology as well as development and production services. By focusing on technology at specific locations, Turck intends to significantly expand its development and production capacities internationally.
"Concentrating on the respective core businesses enables each division to make the best possible market development," says Turck-Holding Managing Director Christian Wolf (r.). "In the regions of Europe, Asia and America, we will create optimal production, logistics and distribution structures to ideally meet local customer needs. An essential prerequisite for this is the development of supply chain-optimized production in each region. "
For the automation technology, the Halver site will continue to play a strategically important role as a technology and production location and implement the regional concept for production and logistics. For Europe, Turck is building another production site in Lublin, Poland, which will be operational during the course of the year. With the restructuring of production activities within Europe, but also from Asia back to Europe, inefficient and costly logistics channels can be reduced.
"We are in an open dialogue with the employees and the works council in order to inform them early on about changes in the coming years," explains Joachim G√∂ddertz, interim managing director of Werner Turck GmbH & Co. KG in Halver. "It is necessary to review established structures and, where necessary, to change them. Only through sustainable economic production, efficient supply chains and customer-oriented service will we continue to secure international growth and thus also the future of the Halver site. "
