Turck Banner 25th anniversary

24 August 2015

Fun and laughter were the order of the day recently when the staff of Turck Banner and their families came together to celebrate the company’s 25th Anniversary.

There was plenty of good humoured banter as the battle lines were drawn and six teams competed in a hilarious ‘It’s a knockout’ style competition.  Marketing Manager, Ian Manning explains, “We wanted our celebration to be more than just a party and as we are about providing excellent service and support we thought about looking outward and helping others who are less fortunate”. 

With this in mind the day had an element of fundraising which included a charity auction, a raffle and a ‘gunge’ tank where the entire gathering sponsored the managing director to get covered in a gelatinous mixture of jelly, baked beans and other unknown substances.

The proceeds from the event amounted to £2,500 which was donated equally to SCOPE, Leukaemia Care and Cancer Research.

In a celebratory toast, managing director, Peter Gardner, thanked the staff for their commitment and efforts in taking Turck Banner from its humble beginnings to become a major company in today’s sensors and automation market.

After finishing the day with a barbecue and a disco, everyone considered that the anniversary had been well and truly celebrated.

Here’s to the next 25 years!!
