From Innovation Leader to Market LeaderOur History

  • 1964

    The unique history of Knauf PFT’s success started in 1964 with the invention of a system for machine processing of the world’s first single-layer machine-applied plaster: the legendary mixing pump PFT G 1. This mixing pump built the foundation as the company grew inexorably to become the world market leader in mixing and conveying equipment for the secondary construction industry. Then in 1975, the PFT G 4 made its debut – for the past decades it has been the best selling continuous mixing pump in the world.

  • 1966

    A new era began in 1966: the bagless construction site thanks to the invention of the first pneumatic dry plaster conveying unit, PFT SILOMAT.

  • 2005

    Knauf PFT continued to expand its position as a technical leader in innovation in the subsequent years – in 1999 it launched a rubber mixing tube for all horizontal continuous mixers, and in 2005 it invented the world’s smallest 230-volt mixing pump, PFT Ritmo.

  • 2007

    In 2007, Knauf PFT again revolutionised the secondary construction industry – with PFT RITMO, PFT RITMO powercoat, PFT SILOMAT trans plus bag, PFT RITMO XL in combination with the filling compound Knauf Multi Finish M. For the first time ever it was now possible to mix and apply filling compound by machine.

  • Today

    In 2010, the conveying equipment PFT Silomat trans plus bag for bag feeding was optimised – another useful invention with which the company responded resourcefully to the needs of the construction industry. Other highlights include the upgrade of PFT Ritmo XL and for the 230-volt and 400-volt electrical connection in 2010 or the construction of the next generation of successful PFT G 4. Knauf PFT’s history of success is far from over! Knauf can.
