Business and Technology

The industrialisation of mainland Europe began in the "Bergisches Städtedreieck" (the triangle formed by the three cities of Wuppertal, Remscheid and Solingen), and in particular here in Wuppertal. The textile, chemical, mechanical engineering and tool making industries have a long tradition here and will continue to be totally indispensable in the future as well. They are being supplemented by many other business skills.
