History and development

500 sqm total area, a few
mechanical press machines, a
Bihler automatic press and various
grid machines - that was the company
from 1979 to 1988. However, the
decisive factor for the
sustainable growth of the company
was to become the acquisition of the customer
Bosch. The increasing
growth required the
move to Pforzheim in 1988 to the
industrial area Altgefäll, Gablonzer
Straße 15, 75181 Pforzheim.

2005 was an important year
for our company, in which
we expanded our production building
and increased our focus on
complex in-line assembly,
welding and deep drawing solutions
. These
expansions have helped us
strengthen and
further expand our position as
market leader.

The successful growth
of the company required the
move to the current location in 2012.
Hoffmann now has 3,000 sqm
of space at its disposal, and the
investment rate of
continuously 8% is far above the
industry average.

Foreign sales continue to rise
and customers
increasingly demand an
internationalization of the
company. With the removal in
2012 the company has already 82 MA
and gains - a
profitable turnover in the clearly
two-digit million euro range. In
the last years in the circle
of the partners the
generation change was accomplished.
100% of the share capital
is still owned
by the successor generation of the
families Roth and Kiesewetter -
an important prerequisite for
long-term thinking and acting.


Hoffmann GmbH founded Hoffmann Precision
Metal Changzhou in China
in 2014 and
Hoffmann Precision Metal in
Mexico in 2018 - both as 100%
subsidiaries.

Since 2020, there have been several
strategic
development partnerships with
global tier-
1 customers.

2022 Mrs. Viviana
Roth will take over the role of the global
management of the group
Hoffmann GmbH.
