25 years of successful support for Hamburg‘s economy

In Hamburg‘s economy, HWF Hamburg Business Development Corporation plays a key role. Since July 1985, its highly qualified economic experts have offered professional consultancy free of charge to local companies and enterprises wanting to relocate to Hamburg.

Their list of clients not only includes Asian shipping lines such as China Shipping, Cosco, and Evergreen, or Japan‘s global players like Olympus, Panasonic, and Sharp, but also small and medium-sized companies.

While initially the key interest of promotion was the new MITT (media, IT, telecommunications) industry, the focus soon broadened by incorporating aviation and logistics, followed by life sciences, the creative industries, and climate protection and renewable energies as latest additions.

HWF‘s currently supports projects by Rolls Royce, General Electric and the wind energy companies Nordex und Vestas.
