With the ChemCoast
network, businesses and government hope to strengthen northern Germany as a location for the chemical industry. ChemCoast Park Brunsbüttel
is one of the initiative’s five sites. For more than 30 years, the 2,000-hectare site has been home to companies from the chemical, petroleum, power generation and logistics industries. The Covestro Brunsbüttel Industrial Park is part of this network, in which more than 4,000 people are employed.
The ChemCoast partners collaborate closely in procurement and the utilization of resources and services, but particularly with respect to logistics, hazardous waste disposal and power generation. The network therefore offers new members an excellent starting position.
Greater Hamburg Region
As well as its integration into the ChemCoast network and the Lower Elbe
region, the Covestro Brunsbüttel Industrial Park also benefits from its proximity to the Greater Hamburg Region
, an international leader in communications, logistics, aviation and port management.
Perfect coordination between sea and inland ports, as well as air and rail transport, has earned Hamburg
a reputation as one of the world’s most modern logistics centers. The Port of Hamburg
is Germany’s largest sea port and the second largest in Europe.
It isn’t just the chemical industry that finds Brunsbüttel
attractive – the people who live and work here do, too. Families have an attractive residential environment with modern childcare services and an excellent school system. There is also a wealth of continuing education opportunities and prestigious universities, including in Hamburg and Kiel.
Brunsbüttel Brunsbüttel offers a broad range of cultural activities, but the top recreational attraction in the region is the nearby Wattenmeer National Park with its healthy, bracing climate and the North Frisian islands.
