Pajot: a family business…tampon-98-100-recommend-us

The company Pajot is a family business which was founded in 1910 by Alphonse Pajot. First orientated on general engineering, the company Pajot took a turn in 1920, when Alphonse invented Pajot air hammers. Since then Pajot has not stopped developing its offers and products in an effort to leave its customers even more satisfied. The Pajot company is now managed by the fourth generation who offers new and used equipment for sale and for hire. Thanks to its experience, the Pajot company is able to offer its customers sound advice when it comes to choosing equipment that is suited to their needs as well as technical maintenance, in France and abroad.

The invention of the hammer was a revolution because it not only allowed work to be carried out faster but also brought about higher impact energy provided by air (or vapour) density as well as the striking mass, which is known as the double effect.

Originally, the PAJOT HAMMERS were entirely produced in the PAJOT factories, which at the time had 150 employees. They were enormously successful and quickly became world-renowned thanks to their reliability, user-friendliness and their great efficiency. Currently, the parts which make up PAJOT HAMMERS are manufactured by subcontractors but they are still assembled internally by a team of technicians who also ensure set-up and maintenance…
