BB-NET AS A COMPANY
bb-net is one of the largest and best quality IT providers in Germany and Europe. We are a colorful group with a lot of love for the detail, a high level of know-how and perfectly digital processes.
In the mid-XNUMXs, an analog data carrier was still standard. Today more for nostalgics and lovers.
At exactly this time, initially as a garage company, the company was founded by a young entrepreneur who was still underage at the time. As the way of listening to music has changed, bb-net has always evolved. Starting out as a small all-round IT service company with an advertising agency for the up-and-coming Internet, it developed into an important niche product in the large IT landscape, also due to some lucky circumstances and clever decisions. We ourselves believe that there is still a lot of music in the future of processed IT.
"QUALITY CREATES VALUE."
As a company, we are realizing our vision of preparing IT. Starting with a one-off approach in rollback, the retrieval of the devices, to manufacturing and marketing under our orange quality seal tecXL. The whole team is at work with heart and soul every day - for the success of our services and products. Highest quality and reliability - always true to our motto.
DEVICES PER YEAR
We have fun doing what we do. Our heart beats for processed IT. Whether in sales, production, technology or administration, there is a high level of understanding for our products and know-how.
Thanks to many years of experience, we can cover all relevant areas. Started with the rollback (purchase, logistics, data destruction, audit and disposal), production in our technology center and remarketing (marketing of processed IT as tecXL or used IT product).
Bb-net has been able to record continuous growth over the past few years. We like to orient our growth here with the 20 mile march from Amundsen to the South Pole. The goal is constant, healthy, qualitative and equity-strong growth.
Environment and sustainability are at the core of the Schweinfurt company's DNA.
At the beginning of 2020 bb-net was certified by Focus Zukunft as the first German climate-neutral company in the field of IT reprocessing. With the help of targeted measures, we avoid the effects of CO2 and continue to reduce environmental pollution. Only in the last step do we offset unavoidable emissions with trustworthy climate protection certificates.

The industrial metropolis and port city on the Main is the regional center, administrative seat of the district of Schweinfurt, an important location for authorities, a university and art city and the seat of a Fraunhofer Institute. The brightly shining SKF company logo is one of the city's "landmarks" and also the largest advertising facade in Europe.
bb-net is located in the Maintal industrial area of the city of Schweinfurt and moved into its new technology center at the end of 2018. Find out more about the construction time and development of our new location.
Our company strives to provide the best possible occupational health and safety.
On the basis of an integrated occupational safety management system with certification by the professional association, we have the best foundations to achieve the best for our employees.
The health and safety of our employees are just as important to us as the quality of our work and business success. No accidents mean no failures. This also applies to employees of external companies or people who are only temporarily present on our company premises. The health of our employees is our greatest asset and an obligation for everyone.
Our own standards and quality are reflected in our certifications, partnerships with associations and alliances as well as many awards.
We are certified by Microsoft as an Authorized Refurbisher (MAR).

We have also been named Microsoft's best partner twice. We are also a Microsoft GOLD OEM partner.
bb-net and blancco maintain an intensive partnership around data deletion.
The leading software manufacturer for secure data erasure. As a Silver Partner, we can draw on significantly more resources and receive the latest technologies and information first hand. As part of our rollback and the associated data deletion process, we rely on applications and data connections from blancco in the background.
ESET is one of the most important manufacturers of IT security solutions worldwide.
Together with the software manufacturer, we have developed an OEM solution to protect our delivered products. Each tecXL device receives a full 12-month Internet Security Suite free of charge, which offers the option of securing up to 3 devices in total. This means that our customers are optimally protected - in three ways. Thanks to the close partnership, we are also a GOLD partner.
In the parental home in Schwebheim, near Schweinfurt, the Bleacher Computer Systems founded by 15-year-old Michael Bleicher.
The first office for the advertising agency and PC service at the time was opened in Schweinfurter Strasse in Schwebheim just a few meters from the parents' house.
The mayor and the local music association also visited the young computer talents. At that time, Bleicher and Beck operated under the name B&B - Beck and Bleicher Computer Systems.
Managing Director Michael Bleicher's first TV appearance.
In an interview with the regional television broadcaster TV1, the young entrepreneur speaks about the company, which at the time was still called Bleicher Computer Systeme. From today's point of view, he wouldn't make all the statements anymore, but certainly a nice look back to make you smile ;-)
The world trade fair for the IT industry in Hanover was the starting point for initial negotiations with manufacturers and the purchase of products. Unfortunately, this unique trade fair format no longer exists today.
In the Schwebheim industrial park, a small part of a hall was rented from a local company in order to store the first pallet delivery of old 486 desktops. This was that launch for one of the largest IT processors in Germany and Europe.
GMBH & UMZUG
Exactly on January 5th, the managing director's birthday, the now named sole proprietorship became bb-net media productions converted to GmbH. The company is still of the same name today bb-net media GmbH remained. The company moved into its first own cold warehouse in Gulbranssonstrasse. This is also where the first dispatch started in Schwebheim.
A long empty factory building for processing herbs was made usable again with great effort and moved into in 2003.
The company was able to grow further on a total of 4 floors. Initially strongly focused on end customer trading under the brand pc-gratis.de.
After many years in Schwebheim, bb-net moved into new business premises in the Schweinfurt Main Valley in the Amsterdamstrasse.
A total of 10 employees were employed and the focus shifted to commercial trade and slowly withdrawn from the end customer business.
Nobody could have imagined at the time that this seal of quality and the vision behind it would become the model for processed IT in the German IT industry.
The market leader was born with the registration of the brand and the move to another production hall.
After long planning, the biggest milestone in bb-net company history to date was created in the Schweinfurt Main Valley in 2018. The new company headquarters in the Lisbon Street 4.
About 3.200qm Usable area with around 5 million euros Investment now finally accommodate all parts of the company in one location.
After a year in a building, the team has settled in well. Thanks to new processes and the creation of a second management level, the company has an even more stable foundation and nothing stands in the way of the future.
