The foundation stone for quality is laid in the production department. PALFINGER makes ongoing investments in new production technologies in order to meet the high quality requirement on its products. PALFINGER optimises its processes and thus increases productivity and quality by specialising component production in the individual PALFINGER production facilities.

PALFINGER’s key skills are centred primarily in the production of safety-relevant welded structures (made above all from high-strength fine-grain structural steels) and hydraulic cylinders, in durable surface coating technologies (KTL) and in the assembly of component groups.

“Organisational amalgamation of the European production facilities into an independent business unit also opens up the possibility of providing production capacities for external customers. This is based on the strategic consideration of benchmarking and further optimising the productivity of PALFINGER’s own facilities in the medium and long term." Martin Zehnder, COO Palfinger AG

The cost advantages are obvious. In addition to our Western European locations, we are able to utilise the favourable cost structures of our production locations in Eastern Europe. At the same time, as a premium supplier, we place our focus on the quality of our components and products across all our segments. This makes PALFINGER a competitive and reliable system partner in the following areas:


  • Steel construction
  • Cylinder production
  • Chrome and nickel chrome plating
  • KTL cathotic dip coating and spray painting
  • Assembly and pre-assembly of subsystems or assemblies

We have the technical conditions and qualified employees to implement individual production and machining tasks quickly and cost-effectively. Specialist expertise gathered over decades, quality and compliance with all the legal requirements speak in our favour. Our certified and process-oriented quality management approach in accordance with ISO 9001 ensures that quality is not only controlled but also produced.

As the top priority of ISO 9001, our sites are a guarantee for maximum customer-orientation and the continuous improvement of our processes and products. Certification by German Lloyd and the production of acceptance-compliant parts (to DNV, LRS, BV, RHINA) emphasise our process skills even for special requirements such as those arising in the offshore sector.

We are a flexible and reliable partner due to innovative logistical processes. Following the guiding principle of “Reserving resources - producing flexibly”, we work to a concept of order-related production. Our facilities have flexible resources so that we can map daily fluctuations of +/- 20% in incoming orders.
