  • Manufacturing industry

    Where productivity has a long tradition

    The Pasewalk region offers excellent conditions for mobile production companies willing to expand. Whether they’re from growth or niche segments, from the area of industrial pre-production in metal processing or other special industries: the numerous immediately available industrial spaces make demanding expansion projects possible in no time at all. Additional start-up support is provided by the extremely generous business development and relatively low administrative costs by national comparison.

    The high availability of skilled workers is also particularly pleasing, especially as a result of the annual graduates from the Torgelow Vocational College and a large number of well qualified professionals from neighbouring Poland.

    Another locational advantage: the region’s excellent logistics infrastructure supports direct 
access to important markets in Eastern and Northern Europe.

  • Polish companies

    Highly rated by Polish companies

    Polish investors have long since recognised the region’s advantages as a location. Automotive suppliers in particular use their branches in Germany to remain competitive and secure new market shares. However, consumer goods and retail companies from neighbouring countries are also increasingly establishing themselves in the border region. With market development, they benefit from clear logistics advantages and the proximity to the cosmopolitan city of Berlin.

    One essential factor is the large number of available industrial spaces in the immediate vicinity of the Polish border. The proximity to Poland also offers a high availability of skilled workers and enables Polish employees to work for companies from their home country in Germany. New settlement projects are also supported by high funding rates and a friendly investment climate.
