The Company


In 1857 the skilled blacksmith, Albert Karl Turk, installed a hammer plant in the mill of his father in law.


schmiede300.jpg Shovels and pans were manufactured using the big sledge-hammer and these products soon became well-known even beyond the local area.

Many of the successful pans and shovels originally manufactured by Albert Turk are still in our product line up today together with other variations of the same basic ideas.


Later in its history, the company which had expanded considerably, survived through two world wars and a serious fire (1953).





The company is now directed by Mister Hans Peter Turk, who is the fifth generation since his ancestor Albert Karl Turk. Approximately 40 employees manufacture about 1.000 articles, mostly for the consumer goods sector.


The export share is approx. 25%.


The craftsmanship and know-how of the employees is the basis of our success, our craftsmen have often worked for the company for many years. In consequence, their flexibility and experience is huge and allows us to accommodate numerous special customer requests.


Subject to bigger purchase quantities special
designs and colours are available.
