In 1920, as a chief engineer for agricultural machinery, Dionys Hofmann Senior began to develop balancing machines and founded his first company in 1931 in Germany.
After making the first hand mold from plaster, Dionys collected from the local gun club lead scrap bullets to use them as raw material – in this way, the first lead wheel weights were born.
