Since 1948 Walter Hofmann has developed agricultural machinery and equipment upon request. Based on his experience amongst others at the company ZF in Friedrichshafen/Germany, he specialized himself in the improvement of transmission constructions.
In 1951 Hans Gubela visited Walter Hofmann in Hamburg for private reason. During their conversation he asked about the development of a new type of line marking machine "from practice - for practice".
Hans Gubela, owner of the very famous company Gubela which is one of the largest line marking companies in Germany as well as Walter Hofmann himself realized that as a result of the increase in demand for cars and trucks the need for well-developed roads with appropriate high quality markings will become immense.
Convinced of this idea, Walter Hofmann founded the company HOFMANN in 1952 as a sole proprietorship for line marking.
