In the early post 2nd World War period, the friendship and genius of two future businessmen gave rise to a history which, after 50 years, everybody can still recall.
The use of commercial vehicles in combination with hydraulic operated equipment became essential for Italy's reconstruction and this is where PZB started from. Mr Pederzani and Mr Zini, were the first in Italy, and probably all over Europe, to invent what nowadays is still called the 'PTO/Pump Unit', drawing the idea from American military vehicles. The two friends had to face many intense, deep and tough moments together, starting from a cellar equipped with just a bench lathe, up to today with all the modern computerized structures.
Over time, the PZB range has expanded and now includes power take offs (PTOs), PTO accessories, gear pumps, piston pumps, hand pumps, hydraulic control valves, pneumatic controls, mechanical controls, tanks and hydraulic control units for all your industrial and mobile hydraulic requirements.
