Innovative enterprises

The following examples show that Zwickau companies have traditionally been characterised by a high level of innovation: It was here that the pit lamp was invented, which saved the lives of many miners. From here, the left-hand drive began its triumphant progress and the front-wheel drive was introduced in large series production vehicles. The invention of the paperback book and the world's first production of a synthetic resin for the production of paint are also recorded here.

Zwickau companies are still working on innovative solutions for everyday life and the future together with scientists from the region. The focus is on cross-industry topics such as electromobility, energy storage technologies and lightweight construction.
