German Manufacturer Euro-Bike Applies for Insolvency

“We see good opportunities for a reorganization and continuation of the company and the business operation will continue as usual,” says Dr Christian Heintze in a statement. The District Court Dessau/Roßlau appointed Dr Christian Heintze of the insolvency administration office bank BBL Bernsau Brockdorff as provisional insolvency administrator.

Long-term assembly contract cancelled

“Euro-Bike was hit by a downturn as one of its main contractors surprisingly cancelled a long-term assembly contract in order to carry out the assembly itself in-house. In addition, there is a challenging market environment: volume wise the production of regular bicycles has been declining for years while the e-bike has been increasing.

Good reputation

“My goal is to rehabilitate the company and support a continuation,” Heintze explains. “Euro-Bike enjoys a very good reputation and carries out assembly orders for a variety of bicycle manufacturers throughout Germany. Together with the management we are currently holding talks with new clients and potential investors.”
