NRW.INVEST AWARD

Investors stimulate the economy, create jobs, strenghten innovation impetus and bring new products, services and processes to NRW. In doing so, they make a decisive contribution to the competitiveness of North Rhine-Westphalia. NRW.INVEST honors exemplary investments in NRW with the NRW.INVEST AWARD. At the same time, this acknowledgement is extended symbolically to all investors who have opted for NRW as their business location.

Over the years since its inception, the NRW.INVEST AWARD has gone to either an individual company or several companies for their exemplary commitment to NRW and their contribution to the economic development of the state.

NRW.INVEST AWARD 2017

Winners of the NRW.INVEST AWARD 2017

Four companies from the United Kingdom, France, Norway and the USA were honored in 2017 with the NRW.INVEST AWARD for their outstanding investments in NRW:

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics: The British cosmetics manufacturer opened its production facility in June 2016 in Düsseldorf – the company’s biggest investment on the European mainland. On a 10,700 square-meter site, the company manufactures products for Germany, France, Benelux and Sweden. The company already employs 300 workers here in distribution and manufacturing.

Hydro Aluminium Rolled Products GmbH: The Norwegian aluminum manufacturer is investing 130 million euros in a new production line in Grevenbroich, increasing the capacity for aluminum body panels from 50,000 to 200,000 tonnes per year. In 2016 the Neuss-based business commissioned a new 45 million euro beverage can recycling plant.

Teleperformance Germany: The French contact center service provider opened the new branch in April 2016 in Mönchengladbach, where it rented around 3,000 square meters in a new office complex in the Nordpark commercial zone. Teleperformance intends to invest 3.8 million euros, thereby creating around 400 jobs by the end of 2017. The company had previously set up its German headquarters in Dortmund. 

Trivago: The startup founded in Düsseldorf is currently building a new company headquarters in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen district at a cost of 145 million euros. The campus will accommodate up to 2,000 employees on 30,000 square meters of office space. Five years ago, Trivago sold the majority of its shares to the US company Expedia and is now listed on the New York stock exchange NASDAQ.
