At PFREUNDT we invented mobile weighing systems as early as 1979. Thanks to our innovative development, we were the first company in the world to receive a calibration license for this form of weighing. Today we are the market leader – and at the same time a workplace with a special atmosphere. We have achieved this pioneer role over the last four decades with a high standard of quality, customer focus and outstanding performance of our teams.
The company history of PFREUNDT is shaped by pioneer spirit and innovative force. This makes us today – and for some time now – a sought-after partner for mobile and stationary weighing technology. Currently there are over 40,000 PFREUNDT systems in use around the world.
Our motivating commitment has always been to make elaborate, time-intensive work processes for determining weight easier for our customers. With a zest for action and a cooperative attitude we work on making your work processes simpler, more accurate and more transparent.
To do this we work and learn in communicative teams, benefiting from our innovative projects as we receive extensive support in all areas of the working world. But our visionary spirit extends beyond our technological development efforts: We are also advancing with rapid strides in training and qualification, on environmental and ecological issues and in digitization.

Since 1979 we have been planning, developing and marketing weighing systems at PFREUNDT.

Sustainably into the future
Ecology and economics will go hand in hand in the future. For us they already do: We also optimize our work in terms of the environment, every day and at each location. Our products have a long service life and are designed to use resources sparingly. Weighing in the work process ensures for a reduction in CO2 emissions, which is part of the reason why we are continuously enhancing our technology.
Our buildings are optimized for saving energy, which contributes to environmental protection, as do our measures for preserving the habitat of insects and birds.
To manage our resources even more sustainably, PFREUNDT has successfully participated in the "ÖKOPROFIT" (Ecological Project for Integrated Environmental Technology). This is a co-operative project in which the Business Development Agency of the Borken district and participating companies work closely together. All the environmentally-relevant topics that are of interest to the participants are covered in joint workshops over a period of one year.
Digitization: The future at PFREUNDT is now
As a world market leader focused on the future, we capitalize on the opportunities of digitization for improving internal processes and developing business models that are fit for the future. In the "AnGeWaNt" applied research project (Work on calibrated scales for hybrid weighing services on commercial vehicles) we examine hybrid business models of the future as part of a funding project and implement them in prototypes.
In collaboration with researchers at the University of Münster, we developed a camera-based inspection system for quality control that is successfully used in our manufacturing. Digital quality management is lived everywhere in the company and digital training platforms are used extensively.
