There were good reasons to celebrate …

On the occasions of the 25th anniversary HOF Sonderanlagenbau and the 10th anniversary HOF Prüfsysteme, the HOF enterprise group celebrated a day for employees, their families and friends.

On Saturday, May 10th 2014, HOF hosted an open house for its employees, their families and friends, neighbors and local business partners.

Despite the changing weather conditions, more than 1000 visitors came to the main site in Lohra. During the opening at 11.00 a.m. Hans-Georg Hof (General Manager) thanked all employees for their continuous commitment and gave a review of some important cornerstones of the company history.


Besides plenty of food and beverages, many attraction for children were arranged. Here, a bouning castle, a soccer goal, a train carrousel, painted faces and helium balloons found great acceptance. However, the main attraction were the regularly offered tours of the manufacturing sites in Lohra and Mornshausen. Specifically for this purpose, a bus service was organized shuttling visitors between the sites.

Thanks to a big parachute, the starting rain was kept from the built up beer garden and people only shifted to the pavilion in the early evening. Donations collected during the event were dedicated to a local charity organization working with children.

Altogether, it was a successful weekend for the whole business, its employees and all visitors.
