Chemnitz - A place for investors
Economy and science – Chemnitz was and is a city with a flourishing economy and the spirit of invention. The fileback fastener, the Thermos flask, mild detergent and many more innovations were all invented here in Chemnitz. The “King of Locomotives” Richard Hartmann, Louis Ferdinand Schönherr’s mechanical weaving looms and the founder of the West Saxon knitted fabric industry, Hans Eugen Esche, established the city’s reputation as an economic centre. Industry was not only responsible for developing successful products and generating profits, but also laid the foundations for the excellent reputation of Chemnitz companies, which still opens doors today.
