PLANOLITH means Reliability and precision

We’ve been specialists in the precision machining of natural granite products since 1976

Active around the world with strong local roots. That is one way to describe PLANOLITH. With a modern production site in Aschaffenburg on the edge of Germany’s Rhine-Main region, we have strong local roots and are at home in the heart of Europe.

We have a roughly 10,000 square meter site in Aschaffenburg’s Strietwald industrial park. Here we have enough space and capacity to easily process large volume orders and workpieces with volumes up to 30 tons.

PLANOLITH is a medium-sized, owner-operated company. It was founded in 1976 by Klaus B. Hein and has since become one of the leading German producers of components for measurement technology and special purpose engineering.

Team Planolith

Our customers can rely on us

We are especially proud of our ability to manufacture customized granite components for measuring or processing machines exactly according to customer specifications. The more difficult the workpiece, the more ambition we bring to it. If it can be done, we’ll do it – our customers can rely on that!

However, our ambition doesn’t just go into manufacturing. With precision and reliability, we also carry out our customers’ workpiece contract manufacturing (grinding, drilling, lapping), as well as services for the calibration and certification of measuring equipment.

In addition to the quality of our products, excellence in order implementation is also very important to us. PLANOLITH characterizes itself through proven reliability, punctuality and transparency in all steps of collaboration. Our customers appreciate this.

PLANOLITH also understands its social responsibility as a company with regional roots. That’s why we’ve been working together closely with workshops for disabled persons for over 20 years. At Christmas, we donate a large portion of our holiday budget to charitable organizations.
