Landkreis Amberg-Sulzbach Referat für Kreisentwicklung und Wirtschaftsförderung: Where potential lies

With its dynamic economy, the Amberg-Sulzbach region is considered a fast climber in Bavaria. The structural change from mining and iron smelting to fu­ture-oriented technologies is completed. Today, the focal sectors of electrical engineering, specialised mechanical engineering, software development, automotive supply, and logistics are the driving forces in the region. Those focal points hold poten­­tials for new firms. With its exceptional study courses such as Patent Engineer­­ing, Media Technology and Environmen­tal Engineer­ing, the TH Ostbayern, for example, is an important partner in the development of new products.

A particular focal point of the region lies in the production of regenerative energies. Biomass and wind energy are the top power suppliers while securing purchasing and economic power in rural areas. Furthermore, the research institute Fraunhofer UMSICHT in Sulzbach-Rosenberg sends important impulses when it comes to the utilisation of scarce resources and materials.

However, thanks to short distances to the cities of Nuremberg and Regens­burg, a good infrastructure and a favour­able cost of living, the Amberg-Sulzbach district is also an ideal living space for professionals and executives.
