A healthy and stable economy for a city that is on the rise
Approximately half of Bottrop’s 30,000 employees work in the service sector industry. Nonetheless, to this day, 4,900 people work in the coal mining and processing industry.
During the 1960s many small and medium-sized companies and retail businesses, mainly from the chemical, metal, and food industry, established themselves in Bottrop.
All of these businesses, as well as Movie Park Germany, the Alpine Centre and many others, benefit from the excellent infrastructure. What is most important – this has led to the creation of hundreds of new jobs.
Bottrop’s diversified economy consists of 196 industrial enterprises, 737 trade companies, and 3,997 other business. They provide the necessary stability for our city and add to its attractiveness.
