News

Hard to believe but true: this year we celebrate our 25th anniversary!
What began in 1997 with 5 employees has grown over the last 25 years to a team of over 50 people.
The areas of special construction made of aluminium and steel as well as trusses for event technology still represent our core business. Parallel to this, we have established ourselves over the past two and a half decades as a reliable partner for industry clients from the food, automotive and agricultural sectors in the fields of special constructions and contract welding.
We are very pleased to announce that after Entedi and Treti, we have appointed one more distribution partner: Podiumtechniek Netherlands. Podiumtechniek distributes well chosen high quality products and is furthermore specialized in custom made stage technology solutions. HOF and Podiumtechniek are therefore a natural fit, as we are well known as a manufacturer for custom made aluminium and steel constructions.
Salute Treti!
We are pleased to announce that we are further enlarging our European footprint and welcome Treti as a new distribution partner for Italy.
Treti is a well established Italian company with more than 40 years of experience in live events, trade shows, theatres and the film industry, and disposes of a distribution and service network throughout all of Italy.
Cheers Entedi!
We are very delighted to announce that Entedi is as of now a distribution partner of HOF in the UK and Ireland! Entedi is an entertainment technology distribution company.

MLT² Lowering Set

After the MLT² Raincover, we're going one better and presenting to you: the MLT² Lowering Set.
HOF launches the POST Dolly. POST Dolly stands for POp up STage Dolly. Why POp up STage Dolly? It‘s not just a transport dolly. It‘s part of the stage layout.
HOF launches the BBT: BIG BOYS TOY TRUSS. The new BBT can take a distributed load of 20 tons on a span of 30 metres. This makes it the strongest aluminium truss in its class and it can take up to 60% more load than previous comparable trusses.
HOF is expanding its company management team with immediate effect. With Dennis Klostermann and Isabel Inclan, two experienced employees are joining the management. Together with Björn Heinzmann, Managing Director and shareholder at HOF since 2003, they will lead the company as a trio.
The rain cover offers the lighting technology protection from rain during load-in and load-out and, if required, also during the show.
The prize was awarded on the 4th of October in a festive setting at the K21 Ständehaus in Düsseldorf by NRW Minister of Economic Affairs Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart.
Our MLT² Pre Rig Truss was awarded the NRW Handicraft Innovation Prize because it enables shorter set-up and dismantling times and, thanks to the dolly with its telescopic legs, requires less manpower than its predecessor, the MLT.
We are happy to announce that we have appointed another distribution partner for Germany to the HOF Family: Vertitruss.

Founded in 2018, the young company has quickly made a name for itself in the German market.
In addition to the distribution of trusses, lighting and sound technology, Vertitruss offers solutions in the areas of exhibition booth construction and special constructions.
We are pleased to announce a new member in the HOF Family: Elektrovat LTD.

Elektrovat will become the distributor for HOF products in Serbia and the Balkan region with immediate effect. Elektrovat is well known for its expertise in the fields of stage lighting and mechanics for theater, television, and film studios.
Elektrovat will distribute the HOF brands HOF truss, including the MLT2, Excellent Line, XOOP Lighting and CJS Coupler.
When it comes to studio lighting, studio ceilings and walls, as well as discreet and space-saving studio equipment to support mobile screens, loudspeakers, cameras, projectors and spotlights, you've come to the right place.
At HOF, you can equip your streaming and hybrid studios appropriately.

- Studio ceilings and studio walls: With the 200-2 Grid Truss system, extremely flexible and powerful grid ceilings for studios can be built quickly and easily and at an affordable price.
- Discrete and space-saving studio equipment with mobile elements from Excellent Line: Excellent Line offers space-saving and discrete solutions for equipping streaming and hybrid studios with stands for mobile screens, loudspeakers, cameras, projectors or spotlights.
- Studio lighting with XOOP Lighting: High and uniform light output and above all the right colour temperature are even more important in studios than in other areas of application. The EL family from XOOP Lighting is therefore perfectly suited for studio lighting.
The HOF Family keeps growing: We are pleased to announce NicLen UK as UK distribution partner.
Formed in late 2019, NicLen UK provides Lighting, Rigging and Audio equipment on a dry hire only basis to the UK events industry. NicLen UK is backed up and supported by European dry hire specialists, NicLen GmbH.

Luke Merrilees, Managing Director of NicLen UK, states ‘I am thrilled to finally announce our partnership with HOF, I have been really impressed by the range of products on offer and am looking forward to getting these products out into the UK market’.

ECO(nomy) Stage

The ECO Stages from HOF were especially developed for small open air events. Since the end of the lockdown, lots of events were reduzed in size and – where possible – are relocated from indoor to outdoor.
The Stay Safe Road Set includes the following components:
STRONGER THAN HULK: HOF PRESENTS THE NEW XHD BOX CORNER
HOF proudly presents its new XHD Box Corner.
Instead of a classic aluminium thread, like the already existing Box Corners, the new XHD Box Corner comes with a steel thread. Compared to an aluminium thread, the steel thread has a significantly longer life and is more reliable.
HOF presents its product news in the category of exhibition lighting: the XOOP EL451.TW. With the new XOOP EL451.TW, HOF enlarges ist XOOP EL series by one more LED white light with high output.
The XOOP EL451.TW was especially developed for the use at exhibitions, where a bright light performance and the right colour temperature are of most importance in order to create the right atmosphere. With its 450 Watt LED performance, the EL451.TW has a really strong output – it’s “DAMN (B)RIGHT“.
The 200-2 Grid Truss is a 2 point bolt connected truss, that offers maximum flexibility. It can be used both for stage constructions as well as for booth constructions, as it can be used both as a hanging system or as a ground supported system. Of course the system can also be used as a simple 2 point truss.
