Products and services


Already in the 18th century, the Industrial Age began in Saxony with the founding of the first machine construction companies. The region, thus, headed the field on the European mainland.

The first locomotive to be designed and engineered in Germany, the first six-cylinder engine, the centrally positioned gearshift lever in automobiles – all of these pioneering innovations come from Saxony. In the mid-19th century, the industrial cities Chemnitz, Zwickau, and their suburbs were the region with Europe’s highest per-capita income.

Vibrant industrial branches form the backbone of the business venue Saxony. Its top selling branches include the automobile industry, machine and plant construction as well as the microelectronics / ICT sector, and also environmental / energy technology, life sciences, or rail and aerospace technology as well as such company-related service sectors as, for example, logistics or the software industry.
