Bavaria

Bavaria

About Bavaria

Bavaria, Germany’s largest state by area and No. 2 by population, is one of Europe’s most advanced and successful economic regions. Its gross domestic product of EUR 610 billion in 2020 puts it ahead of 22 of the 28 EU member states. Although Bavaria is home to global players like Adidas, Allianz, BMW and Siemens, the backbone of its economy is a vibran population of medium-sized enterprises, many of whom are acknowledged world market leaders. Bavaria’s advanced and strong manufacturing sector and its role as Europe’s leading ICT hub puts it at the forefront of cross-industry digital innovation – in areas such as autonomous driving, AI, IoT, cybersecurity and AR/VR. It is the ideal base for national and international B2B tech leaders and start-ups.

  1. Industry power with scope for cross-industry innovation
  2. Prime ICT hub for digitalisation and start-ups
  3. R & D strength – top talent – excellent universities
  4. The Bavarian way of life – tradition and joie de vivre

Reasons for Bavaria

10 of the 40 companies comprising Germany’s DAX share index are headquartered in Bavaria. Such global leaders – in combination with a vast number of top medium-sized enterprises and start-ups in a range of sectors, from Industry 4.0 and mobility to additive manufacturing, healthcare and insurtech – provide the ideal base for digital cross-industry innovation. Businesses, whether national companies, international players or start-ups, can draw upon Munich’s strength as Europe’s leading ICT hub, a string of excellent universities throughout Bavaria and access to renowned research institutions and facilities like Fraunhofer and Max Planck. Further benefits include ample supply of top talent – and, not least, the special Bavarian way of life ensures a healthy work-life balance.

Success story

An exemplary testimonial to Bavaria’s strengths in industry, innovation and digitisation was the decision behind IBM’s choice to establish its global competence centre, the Watson IoT Center, in the Bavarian capital of Munich. John Kelly, IBM Senior Vice President of Cognitive Solutions and Research, explained that Munich was chosen against strongest global competition for its unmatched combination of access to leading industrial companies, excellent universities, a track record of technical expertise, its attraction for top-class talent and the business- and investment-friendly politics of the Bavarian state government. The project, one of IBM’s core strategic investments, created more than 1,000 jobs and has proven to be a true catalyst for innovation.

Cross-industry innovation

Cross-industry innovation mean sectors, disciplines, and areas of expertise that previously had little or no interaction joining forces to create something entirely new and solve problems in innovative ways. Many new technologies are applied in highly diverse areas, making it essential to take a cross-industry view – for example, AI is used to drive new mobility concepts, while robotics are revolutionising manufacturing and medical operations. By pooling resources and expertise and forming fresh und unorthodox partnerships, companies benefit from each other’s strengths. In today’s ever-shifting business landscape collaborating to break new ground is how progress is made and companies remain at the cutting edge. Bavaria’s broad range of highly successful and diverse industries, extensive networks, a huge pool of talent, start-ups and SMEs provide the perfect framework for such a collaborative approach, creating a mutually beneficial synergy effect.

The secrets to Bavaria’s success

At the core of Bavaria’s success is its tremendous diversity. As well as being one of Europe’s most successful and multifaceted manufacturing locations, it is home to numerous non-industrial sectors like finance, insurtech, and health. But this broad range of sectors can only thrive if the appropriate human resources are there. This is the second of Bavaria’s major strengths. The Bavarian capital Munich is home to Germany’s top two universities, the TUM and LMU, as well as numerous world-renowned scientific and research institutions like the Max Planck Institute and Helmholtz Centre. In addition, the region’s excellent dual education systems produces thousands of skilled craft-trade graduates every year, ensuring an expert and varied workforce. The third key factor is Bavaria’s “glocal” perspective: non-native global and local players that help you connect with global markets. And last but not least the effective networks.

4 key factors of Bavaria’s success

Dräxlmaier and sustainable innovation

Automotive supplier Dräxlmaier and BMW have been using the natural fibre kenaf as a particularly lightweight “green” material for the interior finishing of electrical vehicles. To ensure that this innovation is both sustainable and benefits all partners along the supply chain, they set up a project with the German development agency GIZ and their partner Rainforest Alliance. Since 2015, based on the SAN (Sustainable Agriculture Network) standards, they have provided training to enable nearly 1,000 small farms in Bangladesh to produce higher quality kenaf in larger yields, in turn securing higher incomes for the farmers. The training also helps to ensure safer working conditions. The result is a mutually beneficial, sustainable supply chain with all actors contributing to transparency and traceability.

The world in Bavaria

Leading global corporations also have also established themselves here, including Microsoft, Intel, Google, Samsung Semiconductor Europe and Huawei. The presence of such corporations functions as a bridge between Bavaria and the rest of the world, opening new markets to companies – including internationally minded SMEs – and drawing additional business and international talent to the region. This global mix of companies has access to an equally diverse group of exceptional and international young talents from the region’s renowned universities and research institutes. The number of international students in Bavaria has risen by over 50% in the last five years, and it is now the second most popular federal state for international students in Germany. The Bavarian capital Munich is also extremely cosmopolitan, with almost one third of residents holding a foreign passport, outstripping even Berlin.

Rheinland-Pfalz

Rheinland-Pfalz

About Rheinland-Pfalz

Rheinland-Pfalz is an established international, successful, future-oriented business location. Hidden champions and globally operating companies ensure a healthy industry mix and high value creation. The innovative, medium-sized structured economy and the intermeshing of business and science are guarantors of the state’s global competitiveness. In addition to the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, there are four further industries that dominate the economy: the automotive, metal, mechanical engineering and food industries. Additionally, a diverse cultural landscape creates an attractive living area in Germany’s top wine region. Here, people’s lifestyles are characterised by a lively culture and openness.

  1. Innovation location: ‘German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence’
  2. Quick approval processes, short routes, close together
  3. Openness and a zest for life: cordial, welcoming, positively different

Reasons for Rheinland-Pfalz

The combination of modern life and tradition with innovation, zest for life, openness and viniculture are all reasons for the unique image of Rheinland-Pfalz.

The very strong medium-sized structured economy, with many family-owned companies and an export rate that is far above average, compared to the other federal states, is highly competitive on the global market, not least because of its innovation capability.

This, coupled with tourism highlights such as four World Heritage Sites and being the number one wine region in Germany, makes Rheinland-Pfalz attractive, rich in contrast, authentic and timelessly modern.

Success Story

The Italian company Italpannelli develops and manufactures sandwich panels and sheet panels for industrial and cold-store construction, for example. With an additional production facility in Rheinland-Pfalz it was possible to develop the German and Benelux market. With hands-on support from ISB, GTAI and the Industriepark Region Trier (IRT), the company found its ideal site with expansion possibilities in the IRT in Föhren. So far, Italpannelli has invested 25 million euros in the facility and created around 60 new jobs. As a result of the positive development, a second production line could be put into operation after a very short time.

North Rhine-Westphalia

North Rhine-Westphalia

About North Rhine-Westphalia

North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) is the most populous and the most densely populated state in Germany. With its 17.9 million inhabitants, there are more people living here than in the neighboring Netherlands. More than 160 million people live within a radius of 500 km around the state capital Düsseldorf – this represents almost one third of all EU consumers. From no other location in Europe can so many people with such high purchasing power be reached within such a short distance as from NRW.

The size of the market and the favorable location conditions attracts companies from all over the world to the Rhine and Ruhr. Around 20,000 foreign companies have already invested in NRW and control their German or European activities from here. They make NRW the No.1 investment location in Germany.

  1. The heart of the German economy beats in NRW
  2. Germany’s number-one investment location
  3. World-renowned logistics expertise
  4. Where the next generation is growing

Reasons for North Rhine-Westphalia

All major European cities can be reached within three hours from the two major international airports in Düsseldorf and Cologne/Bonn, Germany's third-largest cargo airport. A dense network of waterways, railways and roads provides fast routes to the sales and procurement markets in Europe and the rest of the world. In Duisburg, the world's largest inland port ensures reliable connections to the Belgian and Dutch seaports.

More than 110 technology centers and non-university research institutes in the state form the densest research network in Europe and provide ideal conditions for technology transfer. And the wide range of studies offered by the 70 universities and universities of applied sciences ensures that companies from all industries can find qualified employees here.

Renowned theaters and museums, five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, sports events and cultural festivals all contribute to one of the richest cultural landscapes in Europe.

Success Story

Since the end of 2020, the Japanese automotive supplier Marelli has established a new production facility for electric vehicle drives on the Ford factory premises in Cologne. On an area of 18,000 square meters, the company produces 800-volt electric motors for vehicle manufacturers in Germany. Space for future expansion has already been planned. In the first step, Marelli is creating 160 new jobs in Cologne. The group, which was formed in 2019 from the merger of the Japanese company Calsonic Kansei and the Italian company Magneti Marelli, is one of the ten largest independent automotive suppliers in the world. In 2021, Marelli was winner of the NRW.Global Business Award for exemplary investments in NRW.

Powering the energy transition

Germany aims for 40–45% of its energy to come from regenerative sources by 2025 and 80% by 2050. North Rhine-Westphalia, as Germany’s largest consumer and generator of electricity, is key to this energy transition. Five of the world’s leading suppliers of wind turbine gearboxes are based in NRW, as well as Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy. Other pioneering forms of energy include photovoltaics and geothermal energy. While the state, with its history of heavy industry and coal, faces a challenge to go green, progress so far is impressive. Almost every second new residential building is powered primarily by green energy – a record in Germany. NRW achieved its 2020 climate targets as early as 2017, and plans to double its wind and photovoltaic energy production by 2030 to meet the Paris Climate Targets. In the field of renewable energies, around 46,000 employees already work in more than 4,700 companies.

Increasing the proportion of energy from regenerative sources by 2050

Teaching and investigating energy technology

Research and living labs

North Rhine-Westphalia’s exceptional science and research landscape – the densest in Europe – creates ideal conditions for technology transfer, particularly in the energy sector. 120 institutes at more than 30 universities, some 20 non-university research institutes, and the research departments of numerous companies are both investigating and teaching energy technology. A major focus is on transforming the “Rheinisches Revier” coalmining region, with real-world laboratory projects playing a key role. For example, the RWE “StoretoPower” project is turning a coal-fired power station into a high-performance storage location for electricity from renewable energies. Project partners include the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Aachen University of Applied Sciences. Meanwhile, the TransUrbanNRW (E.ON Energy Solutions) project involves the use of 5th generation heating networks in real-world labs as part of the transition to intelligent low-CO2 energy solutions.

Here comes the sun

Developing clean and alternative fuels is key to reducing the environmental impact of various forms of transport. Researchers in the German Aerospace Center’s (DLR) “Future Fuels” project are investigating how to produce CO2-neutral synthetic fuels using solar energy and electrolysis, while looking at questions of economic viability, performance, and supply. At the DLR’s Institute of Solar Research in Jülich, the world’s largest artificial sun has been constructed as part of the “Synlight” project. It can produce light up to 10,000 times the intensity of natural solar radiation on Earth. In special reactors, processes are being tested that use concentrated solar radiation to split water directly into hydrogen and oxygen. Research is also being carried out into materials for high-temperature applications, and the facility offers new testing possibilities for aerospace and solar thermal power plants.

The green hydrogen economy

Hydrogen is key to achieving climate targets and modernising North Rhine-Westphalia’s economy and energy landscape. It helps to reduce greenhouse gases, the dependence on increasingly scarce and expensive fossil fuels, and can lead to economic growth and employment. In the future, NRW will be one of Germany’s biggest hydrogen consumers and is also well-positioned to be the country’s top production location. Alongside numerous local companies it already attracts major investment from abroad. American company Plug Power, the world’s leading provider of hydrogen fuel cells for electric mobility, recently chose the Ruhr region for its European headquarters. By mid-2022 the company will create 60 jobs in engineering labs, technical support for customers, logistics, and training.

Enapter, a Thai specialist for hydrogen technology, is building a mass production plant for highly efficient hydrogen generators in Saerback. Modular systems for producing green hydrogen will be produced and developed on the “Enapter Campus”.

The British connection

With its large population, excellent infrastructure, outstanding science and research landscape and many highly qualified employees, North Rhine-Westphalia is an extremely attractive location for British companies. Of some 20,000 foreign companies based in the state, more than 1,700 come from the UK, accounting for just over 23% of all British firms in Germany. Prominent examples include British market research company Euromonitor International in the state capital Düsseldorf, the UK’s leading online retailer of household appliances AO, and telecommunications giant Vodafone. British companies in the region have a large pool of both international and British potential employees to draw from. More than 20,000 British nationals live in the region, accounting for almost a quarter of Germany’s entire British population.

Success Story

In July 2017, the French hyperscale cloud provider OVH opened a datacenter in the Hessian Limburg. HTAI supported the company during the entire process together with GTAI, Mittelhessen’s Regional Management and the local development office by providing advice about site issues and expert information.

Owing to the investor’s own market development dynamics, the fulfillment of three sustainable performance factors was required: performance, security, and reliability. The team of experts that was convened for this purpose was able to guarantee all of them. OVH decided in favor of the Limburg site in September 2016.

The datacenter opened its doors the following year – with an investment volume of 8 million euros and 20 new jobs. The first expansion investment took place in 2018.

Berlin

Berlin

About Berlin

With its 3.7 million inhabitants, the German capital has undergone a fantastic development in the last decade. The city’s famous creativity and outstanding research landscape have been complemented by considerable economic power. Berlin has become a magnet for talent from all over the world and the birthplace and home of a constantly growing number of technology companies.

Around 30% of all German start-ups are based in Berlin. The city’s share of total VC financing in Germany over the last years has been between 50 and 70%. Berlin offers lots of support both to start-ups and innovative SMEs. The excellent research facilities, innovation hubs of many international corporations as well as investors all form an extremely productive ecosystem.

  1. Capital of Germany – Europe’s economic powerhouse
  2. Leading European hub for start-ups
  3. Unrivalled concentration of science and research
  4. Magnet for talent from all over the world

Reasons for Berlin

Berlin is a centre for innovation. The strengths of Berlin’s dynamic economy are particularly in the fields of ICT, media and creative industries, healthcare, energy technology, transport and photonics.

Berlin is also one of the most attractive cities worldwide, especially for young people. The Millennial Cities Ranking assesses 110 cities according to job opportunities, cost of living, openness and tolerance and the fun factor. In the overall ranking of 17 individual criteria, Berlin came first in 2018, ahead of Montreal, London, Amsterdam and Toronto.

As the capital of the biggest national economy in Europe, it goes without saying that Berlin plays a pivotal role in European Union decision-making.

Success story

A commitment to Berlin and Germany: at the time-honoured Siemens industrial estate in Berlin’s Spandau district, Siemens AG will make its largest single investment ever in the company’s history in Berlin. In the coming years, up to EUR 600 million are to be invested in a new world of working and living: Siemensstadt (‘Siemens City’) 2.0. This project aims to transform this large industrial area into a modern, urban district of the future. A further goal is to strengthen selected key technologies and innovation fields in collaboration with the scientific and business communities. To make this possible, this section of Berlin is to become home to centres of research and expertise, to start-up incubators and to scientific institutes and companies alike.

Charging the future

Efficient battery technology is driving the future – literally, in terms of mobility, and as energy storage for numerous other applications. Many companies in Berlin are at the cutting edge of these developments. And because the city with its thriving startup scene is a magnet for young people, it has the necessary human resources. The estimated skilled workforce for battery-related operations amounts to some 126,000. More than 12,000 engineering graduates have specialised in battery-related subjects. The TU (Technical University of Berlin), the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology, and the BAM (Federal Institute of Materials Research and Testing), to name just a few outstanding scientific research centres, are available as cooperation partners for innovative projects. A total of more than 30,000 scientists are doing pioneering work in battery-related fields in Berlin.

Powering the mobility transition

The world-famous Tesla company is building its European Gigafactory in direct proximity to Berlin. The factory will be supplemented by a battery plant. Both investment and the anticipated economic impact are immense. Elon Musk’s company will invest a reported 11 billion dollars in the undertaking and receive up to 1.6 billion dollars in government subsidies to create at least 14,000 new jobs. As well as producing up to 500,000 electric cars per year for the European market, the company aims to turn the site into the world's largest battery cell production plant. That Tesla has chosen the site near Berlin for what it promises will be “the most advanced high-volume electric vehicle production plant in the world” is a huge vote of confidence in the region. “Berlin rocks,” is Musk’s verdict on the city.

Space to grow

From the heart of Berlin to the city’s outskirts, there are dozens of places for companies to settle – even for production purposes. The site of the city’s former airport Tegel TXL is being transformed into the Urban Tech Republic science and business centre. This unique initiative will see up to 1,000 large and small business with some 20,000 employees work in research, development, and production. It will be a key location for urban technologies of the future, with a focus on green energy production and storage, energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, recycling and new materials. Allocations will begin soon. Meanwhile in Berlin’s Marzahn district, the 90-hectare Cleantech Park is set to become the city’s largest industrial park and a prime production location for companies in the fields of sustainable and efficient technologies.

Key clusters in the capital

Energy technologies and transport, mobility and logistics are two important innovation clusters for Berlin’s economic development. The sectors account for a total of around 16,000 companies and some 282,000 jobs. The city is also an important centre for the healthcare industries, with science, hospitals, and businesses working closely together. The ICT, media and creative industries make up another cluster. Finally, the photonics sector develops high tech products for extremely diverse areas of application. Around 400 companies and 16,600 people work in the innovative core of this cluster.

Saxony

Saxony

About Saxony

Saxony has many pictures which tell many tales and create lots of history: The heart of "Silicon Saxony," Europe’s largest microelectronics/ICT cluster, beats in Dresden. Between Leipzig and Dresden, researchers and entrepreneurs are working hand in hand in the life sciences and environmental technology sectors. The Chemnitz-Zwickau region is the traditional powerhouse of Saxony’s economy: whether it be mechanical engineering or more than 100 years of Autoland Saxony – strong and highly efficient industries have evolved from smart ideas and intelligent solutions. Saxony’s innovative spirit focuses on such topics as lightweight construction, energy storage technologies, automation technology and the mobility of the future.

  1. High economic growth (>30 %) since 2000
  2. One of the most innovative regions in the EU
  3. Europe’s most modern air cargo hub – DHL Hub Leipzig
  4. Qualification level of the workforce above the German average

Reasons for Saxony

There are many good reasons why Saxony is a top location for international companies such as Volkswagen, BMW, Porsche, Infineon, BOSCH and many more. Saxony is the ideal logistics location. At Leipzig Airport, for instance, DHL runs its European air cargo hub 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Saxony’s greatest strength is its people. In terms of qualification, Saxony’s skilled workers lead the way in Europe. Another great plus for Saxony is its outstanding innovative power. And, Saxony is captivating, as Germany’s number-one cultural destination with more than 1,000 palaces and castles, and over 400 museums. The handicrafts produced in Saxony are also world-famous, such as watches made in Glashuette or MEISSEN®porcelain.

© BOSCH

Success story

June 2017 – The sensation is perfect: the technology group Bosch is building a new mega fab to produce MEMS for applications in mobility and IoT. And the plant isn’t under construction somewhere in Asia; it’ll actually be completed in Europe by 2021 – right in the heart of "Silicon Saxony" in Dresden! At 1,000 million euros, it’s the largest single investment in Bosch’s company history. "Saxony provides ideal prerequisites. The region is renowned for its microelectronics cluster, which is unique in Europe, and it also excels with a superb infrastructure – the transport connections are excellent," says Otto Graf, head of the future Dresden factory, as he sums up the reasons that prompted the group to choose Saxony.

Success story

The Swiss multinational healthcare company Roche invested a total of 400 million euros in their high-tech campus in Mannheim in 2018. This huge investment is a strong commitment to the region and the healthcare industry in Baden-Württemberg. Thus, within the last five years, Roche has invested one billion euros in Mannheim and is, with more than 8,000 employees, the second-largest employer at the location.

Saarland

About Saarland

Bordering France and Luxembourg, Germany’s Saarland is an important industrial and logistics centre at the heart of Europe’s most successful economies. Those who concentrate on production will find optimal conditions, reliable partners and efficient support. Saarland’s automotive sector, for example, is Germany’s third strongest. Considering that the state – with one million inhabitants – is one of the smallest, this speaks volumes for the quality of the location and its workforce.

R & D, the service industry and the IT sector are equally strong. All major German research associations have established institutes in Saarland. The state is a top research spot for AI, cybersecurity, speech control, human machine interface and autonomous driving.

The state’s economic promotion corporation gwSaar is a strong partner that can support investors throughout the entire relocation process – from locational information to fully developed industrial sites or turnkey commercial buildings.

Saarland is the economic and cultural bridge between Germany and France. In addition to serving these two strong EU markets at once, investors can also recruit from both labour markets.

Success story

From production to R & D – Germany’s Saarland offers optimal conditions

For the German kitchen producer Nobilia, Saarland was the ideal location because of its proximity to France. Its site at Lisdorfer Berg, one of the largest industrial areas in south-west Germany, is ideally connected to the French and German motorway network and it can recruit its more than 1,000 employees in both countries.

For the Helmholtz Association, Saarland’s strong IT research landscape was crucial for the decision to establish its Center for Information Security (CISPA) here. The location at the university campus attracts many scientists and is situated right next to the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the Max Planck Institutes for Informatics and Software Systems.

Contact

The state-owned gwSaar Saarland Economic Promotion Corporation provides comprehensive services for investors.
