The Hofmann Brothers formed Gebrueder Hofmann in Darmstadt, Germany in 1931, anticipating that balancing would play a crucial role in manufacturing industries. Specializing in the design and manufacture of dynamic balancing machines, they developed the first automatic balancing machine to operate with resonance. As Hofmann´s successes in balancing multiplied, the company expanded its factory and business.
Currently, the Hofmann Balancing Group includes two design and production facilities, along with worldwide support personnel to serve its global business:
