The district Unna

The district Unna forms the eastern part of the Ruhr area and is one of the strongest industrial areas in Europe. As a “gate to the Sauerland and Münsterland“ the district provides an excellent infrastructure and a high recreational value with its cities and towns. Individual mobility is ensured by important federal highways and freeways with four major interchanges in conjunction with a dense network of buses and trains. Waterways and the airport in Holzwickede extend the capacity of transporting to resident companies – regionally, nationally and internationally.

City – country – river

The location in the countryside with direct access to the "Metropole Ruhr" offers a relaxed as well as an exciting lifestyle, which is determined by divers cultivated landscapes and the pulsation of the  large cities in the West – a unique blend of idyll and urbanity. Golf, motorcycling, swimming, hiking, cycling, living and experiencing culture – between Lippe and Ruhr it is all in there. In addition to individual recreational activities, prestigious facilities and festivals also bring an international atmosphere to the region. For example the "Center for international lightart" in the event center of the former "Lindenbrauerei" in Unna, the "World-theater"-festival in Schwerte, the "Extraschicht"-program in Bönen or the "Kite" festival in Kamen. Manors, industrial monuments and museums complement the comprehensive offer and ensure the "pleasure after work".

Hightech meets craft: Site with future through variety

Inexpensive rents, moderate land costs, interesting surface potentials and various support programs for families, companies and educational institutions underline the particular appeal of the district Unna. The structural locational advantages are complemented by a diversified educational infrastructure, a skilled workforce in all modern occupations, a comprehensive health policy and sustainable investments in future technologies and environment protection. A distinctive focus of the economic activities form the prosperous industries of electrical engineering, computer and IT, food and beverage, chemical industry, polymer processing, fine mechanics/optics and logistics. This variety of companies documents the successful restructuring of the large corporations of the mining and steel-producing industries to a medium-sized defined association. The potential for future development is impressive, because the business location district Unna is wide awake and at any time able to provide further interesting industrial and commercial areas with an ideal internal and external infrastructure.
