In this ‘Germany’ focus, ING aims to highlight the importance of Germany for the Dutch technology industry, and also the
importance of industry for the Dutch economy as a whole.
ING believes that the Dutch technology industry can double in size by
2030, provided that opportunities are capitalised on. Some of these opportunities present themselves in Germany.
ING adopts a sectoral approach. By specialising in the manufacturing industry, also at a regional level, our aim is to remain close to
parties in the sector. This study has helped us to deepen our knowledge and enhanced our understanding of the sector, which will
enable us to match our services as closely as possible to the needs of manufacturers.
This document is an initiative of ING, but could not have been written without the cooperation and input of a large number of
companies and organisations in the sector. We would like to thank everyone who agreed to give interviews. Our special thanks go
to FME-CWM, Metaalunie, NEVAT and Brainport Industries.
