Gersthofen Industrial Park at a glance

Facts, figures & history

Gersthofen Industrial Park can look back on a long and at times turbulent history. Over a period of more than hundred years now, the former chemicals plant has evolved into a state-of-the-art production and services location. A total of ten companies now have around 1,200 employees and around 100 trainees at the site.

The industrial park has 35 hectares of developed space, of which three hectares are currently still unoccupied. Capacity is therefore available for further companies to relocate to the park – a move which could be implemented very quickly.
