The Neckar-Alb business landscape is dominated by mid-sized companies, with everything from young up-and-comers to world market leaders in a diverse range of industries. This page provides an overview of the region's many clusters and the cluster initiatives formed by these companies. Because no matter how new or how shiny, there are no modern means of communication that can ever replace the one thing every successful company needs: Face-to-face contact.
Regional clusters and networks actively bring together companies from the following key industries: Mechanical engineering, automotive, biotechnology, medical technology, textiles, and timber and renewable energies. Closely knit networks lead to synergies and spill-over effects that guarantee the economic success of the Swabian region, while improved communication between companies and research institutions allows each industry to distinguish itself from competitors outside of the Neckar-Alb region.
IHK Network Automotive
This network represents a total of 46 automotive suppliers in the Neckar-Alb region and supports its members by creating synergies and providing research and new market impulses. The position of the supplier industry is thus strengthened and their interests represented both regionally and internationally. This network helps its members to overcome the increasing pressures of the industry caused by shortened product cycles and strict international quality standards. Just a few examples of the cluster's activities and achievements include the TecNet groups and the practice of joint patent applications among member companies.
Medical Technology Neckar-Alb
The Reutlingen Chamber of Industry and Commerce's medical technology network combines the activities of various regional organizations and supplements them with their own in-house services, such as cross-industry networking between members and contact to other cluster initiatives.
