Case Study Frankfurt Pump Company GmbH
In the conclusion of the case study of "The Frankfurt Pump Company" (FPC), founded in 1965 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, by Heinz Hoffman, a mechanical engineer. FPC initially manufactured specialty tools for the oil and gas industry. The speciality tools provided capital for Hoffman to design and manufacture a quality high-pressure patented pump. By the mid-1980s, the patented FPC pump enjoyed a reputation as the best high-pressure injection pump available. After Hoffman’s death in 1979 his son Frederick was in charge of the rapidly growing company. However, Frederick had interests in car racing and sold the company in 1995 to a group of 8 investors.
