We are not the only company to build machines for grout/mortar technology. But only we have the experience gained from over 140,000 units worldwide. And every new PFT machine incorporates valuable suggestions from our customers, with whom we are in constant dialogue. But 140,000 machines also mean a vast spectrum of expertise in the various materials. The processing is thus always completed with a perfect result in typical PFT quality.
