Würzburg – hofer opens an additional development centre


Würzburg – 01.08.08 – hofer powertrain opens an additional development centre: hofer electric drive systems, short "eds". The activities of the development teams concentrate on the development of electric drive trains for hybrid- and electric-vehicles. The team exists of highly qualified engineers with long lasting experience in the development and series implementation of electric drivetrains for hybrid- and electric vehicles.

Therefore the following competence fields are added and from now on at our customers' disposal:


  • development of electric powertrain systems including electric motors, electronics and software
  • simulation of electric drive trains incl. batteries and mechanics
  • prototyping
  • test of electric powertrain systems on test benches
  • Integration of powertrain systems into vehicles
  • application support
  • design studies
  • predevelopment of powertrain systems
  • verification of applications
  • support from the prototype up to serial production


The management wants to thank our new colleagues and wants to wish lots of success!
