Mainfranken. Regional Powerhouse.
Mainfranken is a great place for newcomers. Looking for a job? Interested in starting a new business? There are 72,000 companies in the area with employees, suppliers and partner companies. One hot topic here is electric cars - in part because the car and mechanical engineering industries are extremely well represented in Mainfranken. Global companies such as Brose, Bosch Rexroth, FAG, Sachs, or Koenig & Bauer are located here. Just this industry segment alone employs some 40,000 people, with jobs being added daily.
Health is also a big business here. Nationwide, Mainfranken ranks in the top 20 for healthiest regions. Being a hotbed of medical and biomedical research may have something to do with that. There are universities, leading medical technology firms, and the University Hospital in Würzburg. On the other end of the spectrum, there are the salt baths of the Rhön region and their healing properties.
Another Mainfranken success story is the fashion industry. International fashion brands represented here include s.Oliver, René Lezard, Drykorn, Minx, Basset and Authentic Style with the largest shipping facility for Young Fashion in Europe.
