Last Wednesday, the Ames Turolla team marked the 70th Anniversary milestone together and recognized several individuals for their contributions to the company’s strong performance.
Turolla began in 1948 outside Bologna, Italy, as a gear pump factory. The first Turolla product line came to Ames in late 2009. The Bologna facility hosted a large anniversary celebration in May. Wednesday’s celebration in Ames included remarks from Mike Ulmer, Plant Manager, and Riccardo Carra, Vice President & General Manager, who was visiting from Bologna. The event also included employee recognition for milestone anniversaries and longtime service to the Turolla business. The team also competed in Turolla trivia and enjoyed delicious cake prepared by Carissa and Tony Van Allen, Manager of Strategic Sourcing and Operations.
In addition to sharing pride in its rich history, the Turolla team is also very excited about the future. Turolla is now stronger than ever when it comes to production and is No. 1 in terms of lead time in its industry. Business is growing, with a 12% increase in total revenue in 2017.
Congratulations, Turolla team!
