Production and knowledge

An East Jutland export adventure

The industrial sector in Business Region Aarhus is without doubt one of Denmark’s key export sectors. While industrial businesses account for approximately one fifth of export businesses in East Jutland, they account for a massive 64% of the region’s total export revenue. This is a far higher percentage than the other Danish growth regions, and indeed industrial enterprises in Business Region Aarhus export for DKK 85 billion a year.

Close collaboration with partners

The manufacturing industry occupies a central position in Danish history and the country’s national identity, continuing to provide employment to thousands of workers in East Jutland.

However, continued development in this sector is dependent on even closer cooperation between manufacturing companies and knowledge and research institutions in order to attract and retain qualified labour.

Business Region Aarhus is focusing on competencies, investments, and lower production costs to ensure that ‘Production and Knowledge’ continues to be one of our core strengths.
