Dlaczego Höfner

Not too small. Not too big.

Sometimes you can be too small to get anything done.

On other occasions you can be too big to get anything done.

Here at Höfner we think we are just the right size to get things done!



We take the environment seriously at Hofner. Our policy is to always look for ways to protect the environment and to make the best use of waste resources to do so.

The products we use, wherever possible, are chosen because they reduce the impact on the environment.
