Since 1880

J. Hofert is one of the oldest Christmas companies in America. We were founded in 1880 and operated by the now fourth generation of the Scott family, who have always had their finger on the pulse of the heartbeat of the Christmas industry.

Christmas Trees

Founded in Live Christmas Trees

We were the first company to shear live fir trees, changing the Christmas tree industry from scattered, disjointed producers to the farming of trees so prevalent today, and now required to provide the live Christmas tree market that we help establish in America.

Supplying The World

Thousands of Satisfied Customers

The Christmas lighting industry and the seasonal Christmas decoration as a whole is in many ways unique in business modeling. The manufacturing process takes eleven to twelve months to funnel into an effective three months shipping period for a 60 day customer buying window.

J. Hofert Co. was one of the first manufacturers of Christmas light strings. For over five decades we manufactured C type strings until the advent of the mini light precluded us, the rest of the country from profitable assembly. Accordingly, we have been importing Christmas bulbs, strings and assembled sets from Asia since the 1940’s. We have been part of the evolution of the Asian light manufacturers as they moved production for economic realities from Japan to Taiwan to Korea, Thailand and the Philippines, and now to Hong Kong and southern China. Because of our longevity and reputation we have established relationships with Asian manufacturers that extend multiple generations.
