Attractive diversity is what makes the district Mayen-Koblenz stand out in northern Rhineland-Palatinate. The wine regions along the Rhine, the Moselle and the Eifel shaped by volcanic activity characterise this region as much as strong, tradition-steeped industry sectors and modern, dynamic industrial and trade companies or service providers.
In the past, the region had been predominantly defined by the stone, pit and quarry industries, which are still an important part of the economy, but a modern mix including everything from mechanical engineering to the food industry and wood and metal processing has emerged.
The good position at the heart of Europe in connection with the excellent infrastructure provides a clear competitive advantage for many companies. Indeed, the neighbourhood next to the University of Applied Sciences and the University of Koblenz as well as the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar further improve on this advantage. Specific technology transfer, projects on knowledge management and professional development as well as infrastructural plans ranging from the development of industrial space to broadband Internet are structural policy related areas of activity of the Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft am Mittelrhein, which is responsible for further optimising the location conditions in Mayen-Koblenz.
