Strong partners for a successful team - this is our maxim for cooperation with the partners in our network. It consists of trust, creativity and innovation. In each of our collaborations, it contributes to ensuring that the joint projects are future-oriented and goal-oriented.
We would like to introduce our partners and cooperations in detail.
Our partner company Cemb S.p.A. is a market leading company in the field of universal balancing machines and has its headquarters in Mandello del Lario in Italy. The success of Cemb's universal and industrial balancing machines, which has been consolidated for generations, ideally expands our product range. Thus, the long and strong cooperation between Cemb and Hofmann offers our customers the best possible synergy in the field of balancing technology.
For many years Hofmann has been a member of the Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbauer e.V. (German Engineering Federation), the largest network organisation for mechanical engineering in Europe. The association represents the interests of the mechanical engineering companies. As a special machine manufacturer, we use the exchange of experience and knowledge with the VDMA, because this creates added value for us and our customers.
As a medium-sized company, Hofmann has also been a member of the Bundesverband mittelständische Wirtschaft - Unternehmerverband Deutschlands e.V. (BVMW) for several years. It represents the interests of German medium-sized companies and is committed to their interests. The association offers various events and an information platform with networking opportunities for medium-sized businesses, which we gladly use.
The University of Applied Sciences in Worms, with its technical and business management orientation, stands for an excellent supervision ratio, consistent practical relevance and international standing. Due to its renowned reputation, the university cooperates with selected companies in order to ensure practical relevance and the exchange between students and business. We are proud that Hofmann is also one of the cooperating partners and works together with the university on various projects.
The Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) of the region Rheinhessen has been an important partner for us as a special machine manufacturer for many years. As a service provider to the economy, it is active in politics and the market. Hofmann is a member of the company working group in Worms, which is regularly organised by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Furthermore, we work closely with the IHK in the area of apprenticeship.
Our partnership with the Cooperative State University in Baden-Wuerttemberg has existed since 2018 and was established in the course of the introduction of our dual study programs.
