Globally active - but still personal

Our vision

The guiding principle “passion for performance” is internalised and put into practice – from work experience students to managers.

Our mission

Permanent strengthening of the company with sustainability for all customers and safety for our employees.

KITZMANN is a family business. Under the management of graduate engineer Albrecht Gräfe, KITZMANN has developed into a globally active and reliable partner for the manufacturing industry since 1972. Since 1999, Albrecht Gräfe has been supported by his son, graduate CEO Nico Gräfe. They combine German engineering and business know-how to create a powerful strategy. Today, the companies in the KITZMANN GROUP are successfully managed by both family members.

The range of products and services offered by our 125 employees covers the engineering, design, manufacturing, automation, assembly and commissioning of everything from individual components to turnkey systems.
