PAX manufacturing

PAX - 3 letters that have a lot to offer! Since 1997 we have been a very important part of the rescue service industry and we´re still eager to find more helpful solutions. In this category you get to know some interesting facts about the PAX history and the people responsible for making PAX a leading brand within a sector where every second counts.

PAX products in action

No matter if you´re working in the fire department, ambulance service, police force or a special unit - the lives of so many people depend on high quality rescue products. No matter where or when – our products are your constant companion in the field and you need to be able to rely on them everytime out.



That's why it is our most important goal to equip you with the best products possible. They need to be robust, lightweight, highly visible and easy to clean/disinfect. That's exactly what our products stand for and we are very proud to have you as customers!

PAX standarts

Teamwork is a very important factor in the development of our products. We only work with the best tailors on the market. They are true specialists when it comes to the production of high quality bags and backpacks. Together with our colleagues from product management we work for a common goal -  to come up with the best solution for your equipment. You use it, we PAX it!  Our products are the result of many years of trying and dismissing new ideas to finally deliver the best result possible.


Finding the right materials for our products is not always  easy. They have to be extremely sturdy, resistant, easy to clean, good to work with and of course as light as possible. In other words a real high-tech creation. And that's exactly what they are.


We try to use as little seams as possible, so the surfaces are welded together. It is a pretty expensive technology, but we think it is worth it. We even use it for our inner pouches. It not only saves weight, it also facilitates cleaning and disinfection at the same time. Another important feature of our bags and backpacks are the reflective elements. They are merged together with the carrier material under the required heat and mechanical pressure to make it an everlasting combination. The development of this process didn´t happen overnight. It took some time and money to finally find the perfect conditions, but together with 3M we finally managed to come up with a result that satisfies both us and the customers.




We are aware of the special requirements our products have to meet and that they vary a lot. That´s why more than 300 articles are listed in our shop. We want you to be completely satisfied with the features of your PAX product. Always true to our motto `it´s all about performance.

clear arrangements

We try arrange our products in a way that our customers have no problems finding the necessary equipment as fast as possible to take care of their patients in the best way possible.


We don´t change our products depending on the season like in fashion. They remain in their original design as long as it is the best we can offer. Apart from some minor changes our Koup for example has basicly been the same for more than 25 years. Hence the high recognition value which makes a time consuming acclimatisation redundant.


Thanks to the PAX Organisation System (POS) and the modular design of many of our products it is really easy to use our equippment for many different purposes and in a lot of variations.


Our bags might not be the cheapest – but they last longer. Due to obvious quality and safety reasons we have never cut back on expenses when it comes to our products or working conditions. We work goal oriented and as a team.  A good working environment for all of our collegues is mandatory for us. Because only satisfied workers bring the kind of work energy we need to develope the sort of quality products our customers are used to getting from us.


We don´t like to throw away stuff and waste precious resorces. That´s why we offer a repair service that gives you the opportunity to let us turn your proven companion into a (nearly) brandnew piece of rescue equippment. Why buy new when refurbished can be just as good?!
