Halbfabrikate or Halbfertigprodukte ? - semi-finished products / semi-manufactured products


Explanation:
This is just a guess; I can't really back it up. However, within your context, it would make sense.

Halbfertigerzeugnis - semi-finished product
(Woywode, WB Rechnungslegung & Steuern)
Halbfertigerzeugnisse - semi-manufactured goods, semi-manufactures
(Zahn, Bank- & Börsenwesen)

Halbfabrikat, -erzeugnis, -fertigprodukt n / half-finished o. semifinished o. semimanufactured good o. product

All other explanations for HF do not fit into your context (unless the company manufactures high frequency products...), but here they are, just for your edification:
HF - Hartree-Fock
HF - Hawthorne Farms (Intel)
HF - Heavy Fermion (system)
HF - High Fantasy
HF - High Frequency (3-30MHz)
HF - Hyperfine Field
(Acronyms and Abbreviations, FU Berlin)
