platzmann federn gmbh & co. kg

We are the world market leader in the spring technology industry.

We don’t just produce springs, we also know something about them…for over 100 years.

platzmann federn gmbh & co. kg, headquartered in Hagen, Westphalia, is recognised as one of the industry leaders in the field of spring technology. The company specialises in the production of compression, tension, torsion and flat springs as well as bent wire parts with a wire thickness of 0.08 – 62 mm made from spring steel wire, stainless alloys and wires that are heat-resistant up to 800 degrees.

Our products are primarily used in the automotive and agricultural machinery industries, as well as in mechanical engineering and medical technology.

platzmann federn sees itself as a versatile partner in design and production. With this in mind, all our products are manufactured individually and entirely according to customer wishes or customer-specific requirements.

To ensure continuous growth, we act dynamically and with a high level of innovation. In times of technological change, digitalisation and Industry 4.0, it is essential to keep an eye on the future. To see and utilise opportunities. But at the same time to focus on the essentials. In doing so, we strive for future-oriented development without losing sight of our traditional values as an owner-managed company in the SME sector.

Because the future needs origin.
