Since it was founded nearly 50 years ago, Turner Industries has grown to be one of the nation’s leading heavy industrial contractors. Founder Bert S. Turner (now deceased) and his wife, Sue, and their children have taken an interest from the very beginning in steadily investing charitable dollars back into the communities in which the company works.

As the company has grown in size and number of locations across the country, so have the number of recipients the company has been able to assist. Turner Industries has benefitted a wide variety of causes with emphasis on education, health, the arts and community development receiving funding over the years.
