with deep roots in the industry.

  • 50 years of PFT

    From the "RIVER" to the "BUILDING SITE"

    For many years, the PFT slogan was:
    And we are still doing that today:
    PFT machines and PFT employees are working tirelessly for you, to making labour conditions on construction sites worldwide as pleasant as possible thanks to the best possible machinery. To make sure we communicate this philosophy even more clearly to the world, in 2017 we developed the new PFT slogan:
    This allows us to express even more clearly that we are always working by your side - and on your tailored construction site solution.
