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.

Award ceremony of the NRW.INVEST AWARD 2016

Three companies from the UK, Japan and the USA have been awarded with the NRW.INVEST AWARD 2016 for their outstanding investments in NRW.

AO:The UK's leading online retailer for household appliances AO is building its European headquarters in Bergheim. A new central warehouse and an administration building are being created on an area of 84,000 square meters. The company initially settled in Elsdorf near Cologne with storage facilities and its own delivery fleet in 2014. The move to the new European headquarters is scheduled to take place at the end of 2016. The Group already has over 500 employees in NRW and plans to create 2,500 jobs in the medium term.

Mitsubishi Electric: At the beginning of the year, Mitsubishi Electric, a global leader in the development and production of electrical and electronic equipment from Japan, opened its new German headquarters in Ratingen near Düsseldorf. On 16,000 square meters of office space Mitsubishi Electric unites all its divisions under one roof, from where it controls marketing and sales in Europe. In the future Mitsubishi Electric will employ up to 750 people at the headquarters. The company has already been based in NRW since 1978.

3M: The US multi-technology group 3M based in Neuss is investing 70 million euros in expanding its medical production facility in Kamen near Dortmund. This is the largest amount that the company has ever invested in Germany. In Kamen, around 350 employees provide solutions for the healthcare market. These include a special transparent dressing that 3M can produce completely at the site from the end of 2017 after the new, highly automated production facilities and storage capacities have been commissioned.
