Anniversary celebration in Beierfeld
For 30 years now, Turck duotec GmbH has been a reliable partner for its customers as an expert for specific electronics development and electronics production. An anniversary that was celebrated with an informative celebration on 19 September.
For a good 100 guests, the anniversary celebration on Wednesday was an unforgettable event: When the last shuttle buses brought the guests from outside to the hotel shortly after 11 p.m., an exciting and informative day lay behind you.
After the warm welcome at the Beierfeld plant, Managing Director Arthur Rönisch thanked the company's clients and partners who made its success possible in the first place.
Impressive industrial development
Martin Dulig, Minister of State for Economy, Labour and Transport and Deputy Prime Minister, accepted Turck duotec's invitation and addressed some words to the guests and especially to the employees of the company. In addition to the management and executives of Turck duotec, members of the advisory board and shareholders of the Turck Group, purchasing and management of the customers, guests of honour from politics as well as employees from the production area took part in the festivities. In his speech, the Minister emphasized that good work and a strong economy are always closely linked: An important factor in the industrial state of Saxony. Because: "We want to become the innovation forge of Germany".
This was followed by the speech of the District Administrator of the Erzgebirgskreis, Frank Vogel. He also made it clear how important innovative companies such as Turck duotec are for the city of Grünhain-Beierfeld and the region. Mayor Joachim Rudler was impressed by the industrial development after the fall of the Berlin Wall: "Numerous companies, some of them globally active, settled in the fabric areas of Grünhain-Beierfeld. - Turck duotec was one of them.
At the Grünhain-Beierfeld site since 2005
In a panel discussion, Eberhard Grünert, the long-standing managing director of Turck duotec, gave interesting insights into the company's history to date. For a total of 28 years, Grünert was active in responsible areas of the company and played a decisive role in its successful development. He was assisted by the current managing director, Arthur Rönisch, who has also been with the company for 28 years, so that both were able to draw a coherent picture of the last 30 years.
Thus the public learned that Turck duotec was founded in 1988 as an independent company of the Turck Group and quickly developed into a valued partner of the electronics industry. In 2005, a second location was established in Grünhain-Beierfeld in order to both build up development resources and meet customer requirements. Today, the company focuses on the areas of medical technology, building technology and mobility. Turck duotec focuses on customer-oriented consulting, application-oriented concepts and first-class workmanship. A strategy that works: Continuous increases in turnover prove it.
Keynotes on Artificial Intelligence and Digitization
The panel discussion was followed by a keynote speech in which Matthäus Hose, publishing director of WEKA FACHMEDIEN, spoke on the subject of artificial intelligence. He pointed out where artificial intelligence already meets us today, what the future will bring and where possible dangers of technology lurk.
After a little refreshment and live music, the keynote speech on the subject of digitisation by Prof. Dr. Tobias Kollmann, lecturer for business administration and business informatics - especially e-business and e-entrepreneurship - at the University of Duisburg-Essen followed. "We need strong start-ups and a transformed industry and digitized medium-sized businesses for a strong Germany in the digital age," he made clear right at the beginning and then presented his formula for success for digital Transformation.
This marked the end of the informative part of the event. The guests could enjoy the main course and the dessert with live music and let the evening slowly end.
