Packaging solutions for more than 110 years
Since 1902 the name Hofbauer stands for
high-quality and innovative products.
Our history began with the idea of manufacturing industrial transport packaging.
Gregor Hofbauer manufactured the first wooden containers in 1902,
Metal, textile and leather for trade. Wood and leather followed later.
Metal case for the up-and-coming automotive industry.
This was the birth of today’s Hofbauer case range.
And it was “made in Germany” right from the start.
Hofbauer develops case solutions
for the automotive industry
- the hour of birth of the suitcase production.
The 70s represent a milestone in our company history. Through the use of new technologies (extrusion blow moulding and plastic injection moulding) Hofbauer produced plastic cases for the first time. The “Airbag” was a revolutionary briefcase and presentation case for the time. The Citybag series was also launched, which has since become one of our classics among industrial cases.
