The Hoffmann Group, Europe's leading system partner for quality tools, has expanded its GARANT MasterSteel product range with two new solid carbide drills, thereby further extending its lead over the competition when it comes to machining technology.
The Hoffmann Group has launched the Hoffmann Group TV online channel as an outlet for its film content.

The Hoffmann Group is set to launch its new access technology products for the first time at LogiMAT 2016, in hall 5, stand 5D55. The new GARANT aluminium stepladders impress with added ergonomics and safety. This is ensured by the new Easyfix hooks and holders, which can be fitted simply to the side rails without the use of tools, making it easier and safer to carry electrical equipment and tools. This means that important equipment is always quickly to hand. As a result, working becomes more comfortable, more efficient and safer.
The Hoffmann Group presents its first ESD-proof GARANT Workstation at LogiMAT 2016 and demonstrates how EPA protection zones (Electrostatic Protection Area) should be set up in order to reliably shield sensitive components from electrostatic discharges. The new GARANT Workstation for protecting against ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) is ESD powder-coated and conductive in accordance with DIN EN 61340-5-1. Electrostatic discharges are conducted from the work surface to a grounding cable on the underside of the worktop. This means that the workstation always remains charge-neutral. At LogiMAT 2016 the Hoffmann Group is located in hall 5, stand 5D55.
1st August is the date the sector has been waiting for, the release of the new Product Catalogue from the Hoffmann Group. Alongside the printed version there is an on-line version for the newly created eShop – the perfect duo for a comprehensive purchasing experience.

In total the company offers more than 65.000 quality tools from the world's leading manufacturers and the exclusive GARANT premium brand.

The Hoffmann Group has completely redesigned its online shop. From 7th April 2015, customers will be able to access all information, services and the company's new eShop on one page – www.hoffmann-group.com. Thanks to a simplified ordering process, the online Shop is much more user-friendly.

The Hoffmann Group has crossed the billion-euro sales mark for the first time. The key reasons for the company's best annual result in its entire history are its ability to generate real customer benefits through its advisory expertise in the field of quality tools, and to underpin these over the long term with targeted investments.
With the GARANT 90° high-precision countersink 15 0305, the Hoffmann Group presents an innovative solution which avoids corrugated surfaces or lack of concentricity when countersinking. The extremely unequal spacing excludes the possibility of tool chatter. Not only does this achieve perfect surfaces, but the reduced loading ensures a longer tool life. The set of tools will be officially introduced at AMB in Stuttgart.
