The advent of Industrie 4.0 is creating new challenges and opportunities in all sectors. Thanks to its excellent research landscape and vibrant high-tech startup scene, Berlin offers excellent conditions for implementing the networking of industrial production to increase efficiency. The still available land potential for manufacturing companies - especially at Berlin’s locations of the future - creates a competitive advantage over other German cities.
„Industrie 4.0 is now a household name, but not every company has experience and expertise in this area. During the last few years, we have systematically prepared a transition into the digital age at our pilot location, Berlin. The manufacturing processes have been automated and we are constantly upgrading the information and data exchange between humans and machines.“
