MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March 20, 2018) - To meet growing customer demand for its products, Turck has expanded its facilities in the U.S. and Mexico, with more than 100,000 square feet added for manufacturing, offices and warehouse operations. With 19 percent sales growth in 2017, the company is well positioned for continued growth in the North American market.


Turck's production facility in Mexico has nearly doubled, as 65,000 square feet were added. Six new work cells and new equipment will help to accelerate the manufacturing of customer orders.

In the U.S., Turck has added 38,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space near its Plymouth, Minnesota, headquarters. Over the past five years, Turck's U.S. staff has grown by nearly 32 percent as requests for its products and custom-engineered solutions continue to increase. The new location allows Turck to more efficiently build and ship its products to customers, while creating room for continued growth at its headquarters. The company's Connectivity Division and Research and Development have moved to the new location, while the Sensors and Fieldbus Technology divisions remain in their current spaces.

"With more manufacturing space and improved shipping capabilities, our expanded facilities will enhance how we serve our customers," said Dave Lagerstrom, president and CEO of Turck. "The additional space will allow us to better build products and ensure they arrive as quickly as possible to our customers across North America."

Additional U.S. expansion is taking place in Detroit, with new space for offices, manufacturing, and warehouse operations.
