  • many alternative types of locations.
  • a broad range of available business properties and spaces.
  • good accessibility and proximity within an infrastructure without queues.
  • a high loyalty and low employee turnover at respective places of work.

Just like the big cities, we have:

  • ample availability of competencies and training facilities.
  • an IT-infrastructure that meets high requirements.
  • strong innovative forces.
  • solid engineering skills and outstanding research activities in different sectors.
