The goal of the planned measures is to "sustainably strengthen the international growth of the Group and make the Company fit for the challenges of the future. By focusing on technology focal points at certain locations, Turck intends to significantly expand development and production capacities internationally.
"Concentrating on the respective core businesses enables each division to work the market in the best possible way," explains Christian Wolf, Managing Director of Turck Holding. "We will create optimal structures for production, logistics and sales in Europe, Asia and the Americas in order to ideally meet local customer needs. A prerequisite for this is the establishment of supply chain-optimized production in each region."
For automation technology, the Halver site (Sauerland) will continue to play a strategically important role as a technology and production site and implement the regional concept for production and logistics. For Europe, Turck is building another production site in Lublin, Poland, which is scheduled to start operations this year. With the restructuring of production within Europe, but also from Asia back to Europe, the company wants to reduce ineffective and costly logistics routes.
