Our Company

Leader in growth and processing of crystalline materials.

Company History

In the fall of 1932, Philip Reynold Hoffman built, as a hobby, saws for cutting petrified wood. At the request of a local “ham” radio operator who needed a quartz wafer to keep his transmitter on the frequency channels allotted to him by the government, P. R. made his first crystal. The demand for these precision-cut crystals became so great that in 1938, the P. R. Hoffman Company was founded.

Over time, ownership changed hands and the company diversified into product lines having similar materials and processing requirements. Most recently, in 2008 a group of investors acquired the company assets and renamed the company Hoffman Materials, LLC. Since then the company has continued to diversify with one of the most notable achievements to date being entry into the high temperature piezoelectric material market through growth of single crystal LGT.
