About us

A world leading company specialised in the design and manufacturing of pile driving and soil improvement equipments.


Founded in 1928, 90 Years already !

Since its foundation in 1928, beginning with the invention of the concrete vibrator, PTC has specialised in developing vibration techniques.

PTC has played a leading role in the development of the vibrodrivers: it was the first company to launch the hydraulic vibrodrivers in early seventies, the first to introduce the high frequency Vibrodrivers and the high frequency Vibrodrivers with controlled variable amplitude (HFV Vibrator).

Thanks to its integration in the Fayat's Group in 2004, our product portfolio was enlarged to answer the needs of the different market segments within the foundation industry.
