Quality from passion. For more than 90 years.

The Hoffmann Group wrote the first chapter in its story back in 1919. Quality and expert advice were our focus from the very start, and ever since then we have seen our company grow organically and continue pursuing its path to success. We are often asked what we do differently or why we do things better than others. Perhaps it's because we believe that every pair of pliers, every spanner, every cutting disc and every milling cutter represents much more than just a means to an end – its very purpose is to create the best possible results for users. The tools, the markets and even the type of service we provide might have changed, but our passion hasn't: A passion for quality tools that create perfect results in your hands continues to burn.
