Bitzer + Single GmbH - the next generation!

After more than 30 years as a partner and managing director, Hartmut Single left the company at the end of June.
The vacant position of managing director was filled with two new recruits on July 1st, 2024!
The siblings Anna-Maria Freund (everything for fashion and lifestyle) and Johannes Freund (everything technical) now form the new family management trio of Bitzer + Single GmbH together with their father Bernhard Freund!

Young, dynamic and above all: MORE FEMININE than before!

For us, this change in leadership marks the beginning of a new chapter in which we will continue our mission as usual:
