Economy

Its geographical positioning along with excellent connections and infrastructure are strong arguments for the location of Neuss. They are not, however, the only ones.

The local business environment is spot on! Neuss is economically one of the strongest cities in Europe and has high productivity according to international comparisons. Thanks to relatively low office rents and favorable business tax rates, it has become a popular location for international companies. Worldwide operational companies such as Toshiba, 3M or Asics - to name just a few - have their European and German headquarters in Neuss.

Three large and steadily growing industrial and commercial locations are the seeds of growth of the city. Whether the office and service center Hammfeld, the industrial and commercial area Bonner Strasse or the industrial area Tucherstrasse - they all benefit from the favorable conditions of this modern and powerful location. Wage levels are lower than in the surrounding cities of Dusseldorf, Cologne and Bonn, with the same applying to the cost of living in the city of Neuss. On the other hand, there are high skills and motivation to be found in the workforce, thanks to an excellent educational environment with several colleges and universities such as Düsseldorf's Heinrich-Heine-University or University of Applied Sciences Niederrhein, both within easy reach. The International School on the Rhine (ISR) also offers an exemplary education in the English language. Further study institutions such as the University of Hagen and the College of Economics and Management (FOM) complete the picture.

Specifically the technology-oriented sectors life sciences, information and communication technologies and the food industry have been able to develop into strong productive areas of the economic landscape in Neuss. As a center for the food industry, Neuss enjoys an excellent reputation, which is explicitly promoted and marketed under the flag "Food City".
