HOMA - about us

Local roots. Worldwide activities.

From craft workshop to global player

For two generations, the culture of HOMA as a family company has been grounded in clear goals and structures. The success story of HOMA Pumpenfabrik GmbH commenced over 70 years ago: in 1946, Hans Hoffmann sen. initially set up a craft workshop for repairing electric motors employing an manageable number of workers. Based on his knowledge of electric motors, the senior manager, Hans Hoffmann made the decision, which still marks the company today: specialisation on the development and production of submersible motor pumps.

By dint of much personal commitment, innovations and a consistent focus on the expectations of our customers, we have now grown into a medium-sized industrial company, acting on a worldwide basis. Globally, there are over 60 subsidiaries and agencies that sell our pumps and installations. These units are mainly used for water disposal from buildings, the dewatering of construction sites and removal of surface water, as well as for community and industrial water disposal and treatment.

Driven by our passion for quality, the resolute improvements to our products and services and our attitude of partnership with customers, suppliers and employees, we believe that we are well-equipped to meet the challenges of the future, and are striving to achieve a healthy rate of growth.

How it all began: In 1946 founder Hans Hoffmann, aged 24 years, graduated as master craftsman in electrical engineering. He founded a repair shop for electric motors in a small former stable building in Kotthausen. From the combination of the surname HOffmann with the term MAchine-engineering the company name arises HOMA.
