Mainfranken Regiopolitan Area

From an economic point of view, the Mainfranken Regiopolitan Area is distinguished by its great innovative and broad diversification of sectors. The Regiopolitan Area includest seven counties: Bad Kissingen, Hassberge, Kitzingen, Main-Spessart, Rhön-Grabfeld, Schweinfurt, and Würzburg, as well as the cities Würzburg and Schweinfurt, the IHK Würzburg-Schweinfurt and the Chamber of Commerce of Lower Franconia. It is the goal of the Region Mainfranken GmbH to combine all the individual assets of the Regiopolitan Area and to  promote to potential employees, companies, investors and other partners. It takes cooperation and the joining of all our forces for our area to be able to compete globally.

Growth is easier when you have past successes to build on. Therefore it is always advantageous to build on your strengths. The Economic Research Institute Prognos was contracted by the Region Mainfranken GmbH to identify economic and scientific areas of excellence or regional niches. They identified five sectors: mechanical engineering & automotive, medicine & health, new materials & plastics, information technology & artificial intelligence, as well as energy & environment. Almost a third of all regional employees are employed in one of these areas right now. Yet, there is still a huge growth potential, especially when you factor in the opportunities that arise from networking between sectors. Digital interface technologies are at the cutting edge of making that happen.

All this does not mean that other industries do not play an important role in Mainfranken. To the contrary. Every business sector is an important part of the Mainfranken Regiopolitan Area. Some of the other essential business sectors are construction, retail and social work. Also important are the constantly changing tourism and logistics industries. Mainfranken’s universities – the Julius Maximilian University Würzburg and the College for Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt – groom regional talent that wil is instrumental in maintaining the innovative edge of the Mainfranken region.
