Mechanical and plant engineering in NRW

With almost 200,000 employees in more than 1,600 companies, mechanical engineering is the largest industrial employer in North Rhine-Westphalia. Its turnover in 2021 was 42.9 billion euros. North Rhine-Westphalia is home to major world-class industrial companies as well as dozens of smaller “hidden champions” that are leaders in their fields of business. Every fifth German machine is produced in North Rhine-Westphalia, with drive technology and fittings among the specialist sectors with the highest production values. Mechanical and plant engineering provides impetus and at the same time is an “enabler” for many other branches of industry. It enables the digital transformation of industry and, in terms of sustainability, ensures the necessary savings in energy and CO2.
