As demand increases and the number of employees increases, more space is needed. The new two-storey building has space for a new automated large-scale warehouse. It has a storage capacity of 2,960 tonnes. Sheet metal processing will also find its place in the new production hall. Paul Pfanzelt deliberately chose wood as the material for the facade, interior cladding and roof construction.
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the company, a large anniversary celebration took place in 2016 on the 33,000 m2 Pfanzelt company and demonstration site. "Nobody expected so many visitors," said Peter Voderholzer, Marketing Manager at Pfanzelt. "Overall, around 13,000 people visited us during the evening event on Friday and the two public days. We are overwhelmed."
At the Interforst trade fair in Munich in 1998, the still young company Pfanzelt first showed the study of the carrier tractor Felix. Encouraged by the great interest of the specialist public, intensive work was carried out on the new vehicle in the following years. Already in 2001 the presentation and the start of production of the forestry specialist and carrier tractor Felix followed.
The Pfanzelt Maschinenbau company was founded in 1991 by owner Paul Pfanzelt and initially dealt with the production and assembly of simple gear rope winches for three-point, plug-in and fixed attachment to agricultural tractors. Over the years the broadest product range of a European forest technology manufacturer has emerged.
