Turck Group, the German leader in industrial automation
Turck Group has chosen Lublin as the location for its first production site in Central and Eastern Europe.
Turck is a global capital group which currently operates 7 facilities around the world. Much of its business is conducted in Europe and the United States of America. Globally, it currently employs around 5,000 people.
The company primarily deals with the production of industrial automation components. We offer our customers such solutions as sensors, I/O network systems, connectivity products, HMI interfaces and RFID systems. Our specialization is connectivity and control of automation components. On the one hand we are technology providers and on the other hand we are technology users. We run manufacturing plants that must meet all modern standards and ensure competitive efficiency. All of this makes Industry 4.0 an extremely important topic for us.
Our production is High Mix – Low Volume: we produce a lot of models in relatively short and small series. This type of production does not allow for a high level of automation, so our implementation of Industry 4.0 is focused primarily on information systems and management of information flow in the production process. What distinguishes us is a very high flexibility and the ability to quickly respond to the needs reported by customers.
The characteristic of doing business in the industrial sector has changed a lot over the years. Many people expect personalized products, which require manufacturers to be very flexible. Organising a process where delivery times are increasingly counted in days rather than weeks is demanding. If the company is to become successful, we need people who have a passion for such solutions, are interested in process optimization, etc. In Lublin we have managed to create a team of well-educated employees with industry knowledge. As a representative of the company, I am convinced of our development potential. I know that Lublin will be a great reinforcement for the Turck brand.
