Investing & founding

The City of Zwickau's Economic Development Office offers competent support both for companies already resident in Zwickau and for companies and investors interested in settling in Zwickau. As the first point of contact in the city administration, the Economic Development Office coordinates the necessary coordination appointments within the administration and externally and establishes contact with the specialist offices and other important partners.

For new construction projects, the Economic Development Office helps in the search for a suitable location and prepares location proposals in cooperation with the Property and Building Construction Office. When looking for an existing property, whether production hall, office or retail space, you will also find competent partners in the Economic Development Office. In addition, you can obtain information on Zwickau as a business location, statistical data and all the information necessary for an investment, or the Economic Development Office can put you in touch with the appropriate partners.

Through the Economic Development Office's cooperation with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Employment Agency, the Westsächsische Hochschule Zwickau - University of Applied Sciences and other regional and supra-regional institutions, the necessary contacts are established and information on public financial aid is available.

Special service - „Standortaktiv“

Settlement and expansion processes require good coordination within the administration in order to be able to offer companies the smoothest possible handling of their investment measures at the Zwickau location.

This weekly consultation takes place under the direction of the Office for Building Regulations and Monument Preservation. This is where the City Planning Office, the Property and Building Construction Office, the Fire Brigade Office, the Civil Engineering Office, the Environmental Office, the Garden and Cemetery Office, the Public Order Office and the Economic Development Office meet to discuss existing building applications and necessary procedures and to coordinate the necessary steps, taking into account all official positions. This interagency cooperation optimises and accelerates processing.
