One of Europe's largest and most modern wood processing centres has emerged at the Haffeld industrial park. Next to the maritime economy the wood cluster with its approx. 2,000 jobs has grown into one of the largest employers in the region.
Thanks to excellent infrastructure it is possible to use synergies among the companies established at the cluster in the best possible manner.
Its close proximity to the seaport allows for the global export of wood goods to international ports.
The wood cluster saves 40% of the raw material as all the timber companies here make more efficient use of the 5 million cubic metres of raw materials. The dynamism of this cluster is reflected in the total of 70,000 trucks passing through per year.
