Central & dynamic

Lusatia is a dynamic economic region and acts as a hub due to its central location in Europe.

Siemens Innovation Campus

Lusatian companies have enormously strong expertise in the fields of energy, mechanical & plant engineering as well as plastics & lightweight construction. This is ideally complemented by the very renowned research and science landscape in the region. The Siemens Innovation Campus in Görlitz will combine these skills in a progressive way and thus strengthen the innovative capacity of Lusatia in the long term.

SKAN Deutschland GmbH

“Our site in Görlitz serves to produce the majority of SKAN’s pharmaceutical isolators for the international market. Continuously growing at high double-digit numbers from the start, through initial scale out and several expansions, the site has taken over a leading role in our supply chain network only a few years after founding on the greenfield. This success is made possible by our great and professional team and excellent business conditions in the Lusatia region.”

Belimo Automation Deutschland GmbH

The Belimo Automation Corporation from Switzerland decided on the Lusatian part of Saxony as the location for founding a subsidiary in order to establish a second strong foothold in the euro area and to strengthen its presence in this economic region. Eventually, the vicinity to Dresden was the perfect choice due to its well developed logistical infrastructure, the excellent reputation of the technical universities, the significance as an important intersection between Eastern and Western Europe and, last but not least, because German is spoken here. The experience gained so far since the company was founded in April 2019 has been very positive. We have been able to build up a highly motivated team that is very flexible to cope well with the planned continuous growth and that is prepared to work for Belimo with a high level of commitment.
