Thank You!     
To Our Customers,

We thank you for your contribution to the success of our company. Your loyalty, your trust, your suggestions and the application problems that you have asked us to solve have made PI a leading supplier of Micro- and Nanopositioning systems.

This catalog illustrates the standard products and engineered solutions that we can offer you. PI, however, does not just want to sell products. We want to be
your partner in the often difficult quest for economic success.

Long-term business relationships, reliability, open and friendly communication with customers and suppliers are of the essence for PI, and far more important than short-term gain.

We are acutely aware of the responsibility we bear toward our customers and we take it seriously. That is why we continue to invest in the highest quality equipment and highly qualified personnel. We will keep striving to improve our reputation for high-quality products on the highest technological level.

Our employees are pleased to be of service to you.
