Time to Thrive, Not Waste: Catalyzing Circular Change

To accelerate the move to a circular economy, our aim at PALFINGER is to make products last longer and design, produce, and use them in smarter ways. In pursuit of this objective, we're seeking to collaborate with companies that align with our vision and can contribute to the creation of a dynamic "Product Record", a tool that effortlessly gathers and disseminates information throughout our products' entire life cycle.

Create a "Product Record" with us

A "Product Record" is a comprehensive solution designed to trace the journey of a product from its origins, including raw material usage and production, all the way through its utilization and after-life. With it, we want to uncover patterns in how the product was used before its life cycle concluded, and importantly, track the condition of the product at any specific point in its lifetime. This also involves understanding whether and how the products can be refurbished or recycled, contributing to keeping resources in the loop. 

Who we are looking for?

While the framework of our partnership is yet to be defined, we actively seek teams whose principles and ambitions align with our vision to use resources wisely. Together, we aim to identify a mutually beneficial way to collaborate - whether in the form of potential co-innovation projects, pilot projects, or other partnership models.

We're especially interested in companies covering fields like:

  • Product life cycle monitoring or tracking

  • Impact tracking and reporting

  • Predictive maintenance

  • Product Passport
