Louis E Hoffman was president of the Hoffman Bicycle Company in Cleveland and began to experiment with motor vehicles in 1900. His first vehicle was a 6 hp chain driven steam car, which encouraged him to organize the Hoffman Automobile & Manufacturing Company in 1902. The first Hoffman gasoline car appeared in January 1903 and was a single-cylinder 7-1/2 hp touring called the General Utility.
