Opportunities in high-tech materials & manufacturing

Besides factories and plants operated by international organisations, there are many international headquarters, distribution centres, marketing & sales offices and financial services, forming a strong basis for the supply chains of manufacturing products. This accounts for some 12,000 companies and 94,000 jobs in the region, with major employers including Tata Steel, Tate & Lyle, Cargill, Honeywell, Stork, G-Star Raw, ASM, Fokker, Verkade, Nuon, Quaker, Hordijk and DHL.

Innovating in Amsterdam

There are four key segments in industrial innovation, each working to reinforce the others: the process industry, machinery & systems (automation), suppliers (utilities and semi-finished products) and services (engineering, design and logistics). Some of the most innovative cases within the region’s manufacturing sector take inspiration from the desire to build more sustainable products and to use more environmentally friendly techniques. This has resulted in new bio-based materials, great leaps in 3D printing and increased focus on the circular economy.

Made in Amsterdam

Several types of business rely heavily on the manufacturing industry in the Amsterdam Area. This means that Amsterdam companies specialising in the likes of base metals, machinery, food, multimedia, aerospace and climate control are frequently European or global leaders. And with so many products and processes born in the region, this reaffirms the Netherlands’ position as one of the most important exporters in the world.
