Werner Turck, co-founder of the Turck Group, has been awarded the Federal Cross of Merit First Class. On behalf of North Rhine-Westphalia's Economics Minister Garrelt Duin, Dr. Günther Horzetzky held the laudation in Düsseldorf. He praised Werner Turck's entrepreneurial commitment and the decades of volunteering in his hometown Halver - with the assistance of his wife Inge Turck. Both form the basis for awarding recognized achievements of individual citizens in political, economic, cultural, voluntary or intellectual field, so the Secretary of State.

The Federal Cross of Merit was founded in 1951 and is the only general merit award in the Federal Republic of Germany. In a short speech, Werner Turck thanked for this award and mentioned especially his wife Inge and his sons Dietrich and Markus, without whose support much was not possible in this form. He was pleased to be able to work entrepreneurial through the creation of around 1,000 jobs as well as voluntary for his hometown for many years.
