Our company – Committed to progress
After over 60 years in business, Josef Hofmann Modell- und Leuchtentechnik GmbH has converted from a small crafts enterprise into a provider of specialty products. The products are manufactured using the latest machines and highly trained professionals. At present the company engages 128 employees, 12 of whom are trainees.
For clients such as Audi, BMW, Volkswagen AG, Valeo, Hella, odelo and system suppliers to the automotive industry, the company produces data control models, test cubings, functional cubings and plastic prototype parts as well as prototypes and small series of headlights, tail lights and interior lighting.
The specialization lies in the processing of aluminum and in the production of complicated tail lights and headlights.
The constant search for new materials and production processes, the selection of innovative and modern machinery along with the training of new employees and the ongoing education and training of permanent staff have been the guarantors of a successful history and also will be in the future.
The future of every idea is in its implementation
