Today PB is the leading German manufacturer of scissor lifts in the compact class.
Dieter Pawlowski, company founder and Managing Director, sums up why this is the case:
“We have always kept our word in terms of innovation and quality, which is one of the main reasons for this success. Our daily motivation for the best performance is the good cooperation with our customers. The constant exchange with innovative landlords and professional partners is our source of innovation. A high level of vertical integration at PB ultimately guarantees the quality and value retention of our products. “
But how did it come to this?
Take a look with us at over 30 years of company history.
We are proud to present what is probably the largest scissor lift ever built in the world: with a working height of 37.50 m, the PB S370-24ES 4×4 reaches heights that were considered impossible with scissor lifts just a few years ago.
PB expands its portfolio withTOP 14 + TOP 18 machines and adds two models to the TOP 24 series. These offer up to a whopping 32 m working height.
It was finished at the beginning of 2017. Geared to future market requirements, the new PB hall offers, among other things, 2 overhead cranes and an eaves height of 10 meters. The transfer of production also provides PB Service with new possibilities to carry out maintenance and repair work more quickly and efficiently.
All in all: Platformers Business – made in Germany.
The interest of international markets in PB scissors is also growing visibly. As a result, sales on the English market are strengthened and a Spanish PB office is opened. But in order to keep pace with the expansion course, not only personnel resources but also corresponding space resources are of course necessary.
The TOP 24 series not only sets a new working height benchmark for PB with up to 27 m, but also generally plays a big role in the scissors market. The same applies to the load, at which 1 (!) Ton is cracked for the first time. That not only makes domestic customers sit up and take notice, but …
Sometimes less is more than sufficient, which is why we decided to expand our product portfolio with the 5-16 m PB ECo series. Perfect for areas of application that do not require extreme working heights, but only offer limited space. Compact, agile, fast – and completely emission-free. So thoroughly ECOnomic. From next year onwards there will again be other stages
Working platforms meets Oktoberfest? For sure: PB celebrates its premiere with the Bühnenwiesn, an in-house exhibition on its own company premises. There, PB will present the latest work platform technology in conjunction with other well-known manufacturers and “garnish” the whole thing with a portion of blue and white Oktoberfest feeling. In the period that followed, the annual event established itself as a permanent fixture on the market
PB’s TOP 19 4×4 series will be presented to the industry at Bauma. And from then on it says: Difficult underground? No problem. From now on, the 4×4 TOP 19 all-rounders convince with full off-road mobility and autom. axle leveling. Combined with high lift capacity and a large mega deck platform. Worker’s heart, what more do you want?
Partners from all over the world test proven and new machines here, exchange technical know-how and personal experience, in short: practice an excellent partnership. You are also very welcome!
There was an expansion of the production capacity. At the same time, the decision to build a new PB customer center is made.
The successful market launch of the PB TOP scissor lift series with PB TOP 12 and PB TOP 16 machines required changes.
The company specialized exclusively in the production of self-propelled work platforms.
