Throughout its 40-year history, Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik GmbH has gained an excellent reputation in international mechanical engineering. The product range has been continuously extended since it was set up by Hermann Paus in 1968. In the early days, the company focused on the assembly of construction machines (wheel loaders and dumpers), but over subsequent years, the development and production of mining and tunnelling vehicles, as well as telescopic elevators, working platforms and cranes, have been added to the PAUS product range. Paus underlined its international credentials with the setting-up of a representative agency in Moscow (2001) and a sales company in Santiago de Chile (2003). All machines are exported from Emsbüren (Germany) throughout the world, by a global network of distributors. And it pays: exports currently make up around 70% of Paus' sales.
