newPark – Visions find space
Over the next few years, the newPark industrial area on the northern edge of the Ruhr Metropolis is to become the location for new industries and jobs of the future.
The planned area of around 290 hectares offers sufficient space for large industrial investment projects. Large companies with their network of suppliers and service providers are expected to be able to settle in newPark in the medium term. A commercial and industrial area of around 156 ha will be created for the settlement of companies in the various areas of newPark.
Made to grow: Ideal for Industry 4.0
newPark is to be the first large Industry 4.0 landscape for digitally networked future factories and innovative manufacturing processes in NRW. A new innovative production and service environment will provide ideal conditions for the fourth industrial revolution. The basis will be a fiber optic network, an environmentally friendly energy supply and an attractive urban planning ambience in the park.
Additive manufacturing processes play a key role in manufacturing products tailored to customers' needs.
Innovative services relating to Factories 4.0 will be provided: The digital infrastructure ranges from a newPark data center and communication networks to a security architecture. Logistical services organize the flow of materials from purchasing to the customer.
Service providers offer research, consulting and engineering. Specialized centers or measuring and testing laboratories combine surface treatment and quality control.
newPark pursues a consistent GreenTech concept. Companies will find an environment that corresponds to their own orientation and approach and enables them to implement GreenTech in research, development and production.
