Going to Extremes

Service is our mission

Made in Germany and successful all over the world PSG Plastic Service Group offers hot runner and control systems. These products are developed, manufactured, and tested under reallife scenarios at four sites in Germany. We guarantee the highest quality, fast availability, flexible solutions, and swift response times. Our focus is on the plastic processing industries where we provide extensive sector know how and where we contribute more than 50 years of experience. Also, you can find our control and temperature management systems in the food industry, facility management, the metals industry, and others... in short, in situations where temperatures and pressure need to be controlled.

Even though price is a main criteria for applications, the sophisticated standardization of PSG makes the products highly attractive versus any competitive offering anywhere in the world. For demanding applications we offer Premium solutions. By working together early during the design/conceptualization phase, PSG can bring all its experience to bear in order to fulfill the highest application-specific quality expectations of our customers.

Global availability of products and services PSG has a global network, and we offer onestop, competent advice for global projects. We ensure this through our own staff, along with partners in over 30 countries in Europe, Asia, and America.
