Hofmann

Hofmann 75 Years of Quality, Expertise, Innovation

The Hofmann Corporation, a worldwide company, began in 1931 as a privately-owned company located in Pfungstadt, Germany. Hofmann USA began manufacturing, distributing and servicing its products in North America in 1969. In 1997, Hofmann Corporation was purchased by Snap-on, Inc. Since this purchase, Hofmann has taken steps to strengthen its position in the marketplace with a solid feature-packed product offering. Combined with our sister company in Canada, Hofmann Balancing Techniques, Ltd., we have become a major supplier of professional shop equipment to the automotive aftermarket in North America. Today, we have in place a nationwide factory-trained independent sales and service network to support our products. The Hofmann training center, located just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas is fully equipped to train factory representatives, service technicians, distributors and automotive technicians on the latest products available.
