Panther began in 1985 as Panther Machine, Inc., a small company specializing in the machining of powder metal components, primarily for the automotive industry. The company quickly earned a reputation for precision-made products, superb quality and reliable delivery.
We rapidly evolved into the dominant producer of crankshafts for the consumer hand-held lawn and garden implement gasoline engine industry. Today, Panther produces eight million crankshafts per year, commanding almost 90 percent of our target market in North America.
To maintain a globally competitive cost, Panther officially began manufacturing in our wholly owned subsidiary, Panther Crankshafts Ningbo, LTD., in Ningbo, China in 2005.
Our Asian manufacturing presence and excellent supply chain have enabled Panther to diversify our manufacturing into product lines other than multi-piece crankshafts. We now also specialize in zinc injection molded assembly, other types of crankshafts, connecting rods, shaft products and other assemblies. We are also a full-service supplier. Please visit our products pages to learn more about Panther manufacturing capabilities.
Our growth and diversification recently led to the identity change to Panther Global Technologies.
Our global headquarters remains in Wixom, Michigan, where we maintain backup manufacturing capabilities, warehousing and logistics, assuring timely delivery of our products to our North American customers. In addition, we employ a staff of customer service and engineering associates to provide English-speaking design and development capabilities to our customers.
Today, the vast majority of our manufacturing occurs in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in China. From China, we ship a variety of crankshafts and other assemblies to customers in China, North America and Europe. Click here to take a virtual tour of Panther China.
Between these two locations, Panther Global Technologies is strategically situated to provide superior design, development and manufacturing for a growing array of products.
