Future Business Success

Granite has a unique thermal and vibration-damping properties and is employed in many of PI’s multi-axis air bearing and gantry systems. P·G·W’s highly accurate competencies with machined granite base plates fit perfectly with PI’s corporate strategy of establishing a global network of PI Design Centers. Assembly of complete precision motion control systems at P·G·W is also planned for the future.

"With P·G·W, we are completing the system approach for our entire portfolio and strengthen our commitment to the growth markets in Asia," emphasizes Markus Spanner, CEO of Physik Instrumente. PI and P·G·W have maintained business relations for many years and the transfer of the company was part of Hayata Watanabe’s succession plan. "Our offerings fit perfectly, which is the key factor for future business success," affirms P·G·W owner, Hayata Watanabe. P·G·W’s existing management team will be integrated into the new management structure.
