Groups, mid tier and hidden champions
The biggest and most popular employers of the region are for example the Volkswagen AG, which runs Europe's biggest coherent logistics division in Baunatal, SMA Solar Technology AG, global market leader for photovoltaic inverters, K+S AG, which is regionally rooted since 1856 as well as the Daimler AG, which is producing axles for the global market. Together, they offer employment to tens of thousands of people. However, the majority of all employees work for the medium-sized groups, companies and service providers of the region. These include innovation-, technology- and global leaders as well as a considerable number of so-called hidden champions. They all make the region Kassel an innovative, dynamic and creative business location with a long-term perspective.
