Our identity: Precision as a guiding principle

Precision characterizes our way of thinking and our actions. We’ve worked intensively with natural granite and its processing for more than 50 years. We’ve focused all of our energy on this – resulting in a high degree of professional expertise and extensive experience.

We demand the highest quality from ourselves and from the measuring equipment and machine components we produce, all in the interests of our customers. Every employee, every machine and every step in the work process are geared toward achieving this objective.

Our company’s high level of technical expertise is proven not least by PLANOLITH’s licence as an accredited calibration laboratory in 2004 (DAkkS since 2013).

"Granite is an outstanding material for precision measuring and machining when working on the micron scale. We at PLANOLITH aim to be an outstanding partner for our customers and to meet their highest expectations of quality!"
