Successful businesses already in place:
KTN Kunststofftechnik Nobitz GmbH, which supplies to Airbus, manufactures fibre-reinforced plastics and plastic air conditioning pipes. The company was established in 2001, became part of the French Hutchinson Group in 2011, and employs 200 people.
AVIC International Holding Corporation has acquired all diesel aircraft engine and manufacturing assets of the former Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH in July 2013 and adds them as Technify Motors GmbH to the Continental Motors Group. The Technify Motors GmbH makes the most of the direct access to the tarmac at Leipzig-Altenburg Airport - their customers taxi to their door.
