The automation specialist Turck expands its sales and marketing headquarters. With a symbolic ground-breaking ceremony, Turck's managing directors Ulrich Turck and Christian Wolf gave the go-ahead for the new building in Mülheim an der Ruhr in the presence of Dagmar Mühlenfeld, the Mayor of Mülheim, and the architect Erasmus Eller. On the approximately 15,000 square meter plot adjacent to the existing headquarters at the Witzlebenstraße, an architecturally ambitious building will be built on until the spring of 2016, which will offer approximately 4,500 square meters of office and space for employees and customers. The building design offers a spacious reception and conference area on the ground floor and is surrounded by a campus-like park. Responsible for planning and implementing is the architecture office Eller + Eller.
"In recent years the Turck group has invested around 40 million euros in new manufacturing and development centers at its German plants in Halver, Beierfeld and Detmold, as well as in the United States and Mexico. The new building of our sales and marketing headquarters in Mülheim will cost 12 million more", says Ulrich Turck. "With this investment in the future we create the conditions for further strengthening of our competitiveness and sustained growth of the Turck group."
Mülheim's Mayor Dagmar Mühlenfeld congratulated the company in her greeting to its successful development here in Mülheim: "The Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG is one of those companies that justifies Mülheim's reputation around the world as an ideal town for businesses. The Turck Group is today a medium-sized flagship company, which has always remained true to its strategy, namely, to take on the competition not on price but on the quality of its products. The ground-breaking ceremony for the new sales and marketing office is the best evidence that the company looks to the future with confidence."
