The company was founded in 1931 in the course of the discovery and development of the PAN® procedure and has been family-owned ever since.

We produce exclusively highly wear-resistant PAN® materials according to the PAN® procedure.

Since inception, we see ourselves not just as a producer of highly wear-resistant high-strength bronze and brass alloys but also as a partner for the solution of tribological problems.

As a result, we are able to choose and offer from a variety of more than 14 different high-strength bronze alloys the alloy that is best suited to solve your particular tribological problem.

The continuous improvement of the tribological behaviour of bronzes and high-strength brass alloys counts among the aims of the company.

This was also the reason why PAN®-GF plain bearings – plain bearings with solid lubricant – were developed at the beginning of the 1960’s.

The PAN®-GF design is the product of our continuous further development towards a maintenance-free or low-maintenance plain bearing.
