Industriepark Höchst in Frankfurt, Germany, is home to around 90 chemical and pharmaceutical companies that conduct research, development and production at the park. It is already one of Europe's largest, most successful industrial estates and continues to attract new companies and millions of euros in investment from tenants every year. Total investment since 2000 amounts to roughly EUR 8.5 billion.
Excellent access to transportation: airport and trimodal port
The park offers countless logistics advantages: a central location in Europe’s heartland, outstanding access to the highway and national railway system, and close proximity to Frankfurt Airport. The on-site trimodal port interconnects road, rail and inland waterways. Its technical infrastructure is ideal, too, with modern waste management facilities and efficient energy generation plants that have made the park energy-independent.
22,000 employees: size of a small town
Around 22,000 people work at Industriepark Höchst, which is 460 hectares or roughly the size of a small town. Industriepark Höchst is the former parent plant of what used to be Hoechst AG. Infraserv Höchst has been operating the park's high-performance infrastructure since 1998. The park – which is a product of modern industrial culture – is a hotbed for biotechnology, automated logistics, sustainable energy production and resource conservation, modern research methods and production processes.
Chemical, pharmaceutical and life science companies enjoy easy access to road, rail, air and water transportation, a deep, broad pool of skilled workers, a specialized utilities infrastructure and excellent site services from Infraserv Höchst.
