Remanufacturing the Future

Machinery and Plant Manufacturing Opportunities in Eastern Germany

Sep 04, 2017 - Sep 04, 2017

Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) is honored to invite you to an investor luncheon for Singaporean businesses at the Mandarin Orchard Hotel on Monday, September 4, 2017.

Germany’s machinery and equipment sector counts as the country’s second biggest and most innovative industry sector. Within Eastern Germany, the state of Saxony-Anhalt can look back on a 150 year-plus engineering tradition that has allowed it to become one of Europe’s high-tech production hubs. Thanks to its innovative industry cluster network, the region is excellently placed to play a leading role in, for example, Europe’s fast-growing remanufacturing market.

GTAI will provide an overview of current developments and investment opportunities in the country’s machine engineering sector. Specific focus will be paid to the burgeoning remanufacturing sector and Eastern Germany’s thriving industry cluster landscape. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in Saxony-Anhalt will also outline the innovative potential that awaits international investors in this dynamic manufacturing region.
