Two thirds of these jobs are held by incoming commuters. As the business and administrative centre of the Oberlausitz region, we are a successful component of the economic region around Dresden. One of the key preconditions for this success is the excellent transport infrastructure. Bautzen, located on the Trans-European development axis, the State Highway 4, has three intersections serving the city, along with the many “A roads” focusing on the city from all directions, ensuring shortest distances and excellent connections. The railway connection to Bautzen and a well developed regional airport in Bautzen-Litten serve to connect Bautzen with the outside world.

Global Players such as Bombardier Transportation, Cideon, Develey, Edding, Hentschke Bau, itelligence, Leoni, Orgelbau Eule, Vodafone and many others are typical of this widely diversified business location. Products “Made in Bautzen” are in demand worldwide.

Our core competencies lie in the key industries of universal vehicle construction, building and construction, processing/shaping of plastic materials, SAP/IT services, machine tool and system construction, engineering, writing instruments, food and drink industries, skilled manual trades, wholesaling, logistics and many others.
