Our Founder

  • Charles E. Hofmann 
    1912 - 1986

    Charles E. Hofmann started in the water treatment industry in 1935, working with W.H. and L.D Betz (now GE Water), for over 15 years.   From there, he went on to become the General Manager of The Bird-Archer Company (founded in 1888, it was the oldest water treatment company in the U.S).

    In 1967, Mr. Hofmann founded HWT.  With his strong experience and reputation, HWT quickly established itself, serving the paper, textile, and power industries, as well as numerous clients in the  commercial and institutional sectors.

    HWT continues to embrace the principles that Mr. Hofmann considered so important:   integrity, the pursuit of excellence, and a genuine concern for our clients best interests.
