Outstanding investment projects in NRW

Alongside the many compelling economic and infrastructure-related arguments in favor of North Rhine-Westphalia, NRW stands out on account of its cosmopolitan atmosphere and hospitality. Cultural diversity is a defining feature of NRW. For example, Cologne has a broad-based Chinese infrastructure (medical professionals, service providers, schools etc.). Over the past 150 years of lively economic and cultural exchange with Japan, Europe’s third largest Japanese community has emerged in the city of Düsseldorf. Due to these favorable conditions, foreign investors feel at home in NRW, both culturally and economically.

Huawei

This Chinese producer of IT and telecoms solutions has channeled significant investments into its base in Düsseldorf. This manifests itself in the new headquarters for Western Europe, and Germany which is already home to 650 employees and will be expanded in future.

UPS

The US-based express delivery and parcel service invested €145 million in its sorting center at Cologne-Bonn Airport. This extended and modernized facility can handle up to 190,000 consignments per hour. Two hundred new jobs have been created.

Air Liquide

In 2013 this French industrial gas producer chose Oberhausen as the site for Germany’s largest air separation plant, costing around €60 million. At the Dormagen Chemical Park the company is currently investing a further €100 in a new gas production plant. Every year this steam reformer installation will supply Bayer MaterialScience with 22,000 tons of hydrogen and 120,000 tons of carbon monoxide..
