History

The PDS LLC was founded in Dallas, North Carolina in 1996 as the exclusive North American sales and service center of Giordano Colombo, Italy. To comply with the constantly growing demand from Germany and Europe, PDS GmbH was founded in Löhne in February 2005 as the first subsidiary and with a decade of global experience in the field of motor spindles, successfully turned from a reseller and repair center into a manufacturer of motor spindles with automatic and manual tool change. The PDS Group specialized in the repair of motor spindles of all kinds – no matter the brand - as well as in the production of its own high-precision motor spindles and has been supplying hundreds of different motor spindles exactly customized to customer’s production since then. Our range of products also includes various accessories such as tool holders, tool clamps, collet chucks, wrenches, frequency converters and many more.
