Our Vision

We create added value for our customers with our packaging. The foundation for our company’s success is innovation. We want the prominent position of our metal tins and Polyfoil® and plastic tubes to expand into the European, the U.S. and other markets. We therefore set trends and develop new products with optimum functionality and distinct design.

Our Values

Hoffmann Neopac stands for openness and respect not only within the company itself, but also with our business partners. We act independently and promote the courage to explore new horizons.


  • inspire our customers with unique products and services
  • win our customers over with innovative solutions
  • are honest and maintain a respectful approach
  • act according to clear and measurable objectives
  • work independently and across different areas of expertise
  • are open to new ideas and put improvements into practice


We take our responsibility as a company very seriously and protect what is precious!

The manufacture of our products is linked to high costs and emissions. We look to save natural resources by optimizing our supply chain, manufacturing processes and the lifecycle of our packaging.

People with knowledge and dedication are the most important resource for our family business. Our foundation lies in a sound capital structure. We plan investments carefully, pursue a sustainable business development strategy, and thus secure the business’ future.
