Success Stories in the New Federal States
CEOs on their investments
Area Manager Private Customers Vodafone Deutschland
The German capital region of Berlin and Brandenburg is establishing itself more and more as a center of the European start-up scene – in all industry sectors. As a result, the region is making a significant contribution to economic growth in Germany. This emerging location is the ideal environment for an innovative company like Vodafone. The capital region’s extensive work-life balance offer is also highly attractive to companies and employees alike.
Vice President eBay Germany
As eBay Germany is located in Brandenburg, just outside the gates of Germany’s vibrant and lively capital, an exciting workplace is guaranteed. In addition, the leisure and repose offered by the proximity to the popular Lake Wannsee in Dreilinden enables a relaxed and calm working atmosphere.
Managing Director of Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH
Our production site in Rostock plays an important role for the maritime crane division of Liebherr. Direct access to the sea and the general conditions in this region offer best opportunities for sales and competition on the international market.
Chairman, Bharat Forge Limited
We would like to advocate Saxony for its excellent infrastructure – roads, railways & airports and an investor friendly government. Saxony happens to be one of the major automotive hubs and most importantly, highly skilled people are available at an extremely competitive cost.
Chief Operating Officer Greatviewpack
The location of the factory in the Saxony-Anhalt Industrial Estate, off highway 14 (230 ha) is ideal for logistics and allows our customers a fast time to market. Packaging material manufactured in our Halle factory can easily be shipped as far as Russia, the Middle East, and North/South America through ports in Germany, Belgium and Holland. Our new location also means that we can reduce our carbon footprint by nearing us to customers, suppliers and raw materials.
