The legacy of Hoffman Enclosures began 75 years ago when its founder Harry Hoffman designed an innovative automation press guard. Ahead of its time, the guard product protected workers from injuries, kept factories running and served as the core product for the launch of his namesake company in October 1945. Now as part of nVent Electric plc, the nVent Hoffman brand lives on.
“The spirit of discovery and absolute integrity that Harry Hoffman possessed continues today,” said Vice President and General Manager Karla Leis about the milestone. “We pride ourselves on our reliability and expertise for finding the right solutions. While an enclosure typically is a lower-cost item in the overall automation solution, it is also one of the most critical parts in protecting people and equipment.”
With more than 12,000 products and tailored solutions, nVent offers a global manufacturing footprint and a uniquely complete range of IEC and NEMA electrical enclosures under the nVent Hoffman brand, plus thermal management solutions. All nVent Hoffman products are manufactured to the highest standards, and backed by service and sales support around the world.
