Cluster Hightech Itzehoe competency alongside a value added chain.

Hightech Itzehoe is the Cluster Microtechnologies Schleswig-Holstein.


In a successful cluster, the single companies together make up a functioning value chain.

Hightech Itzehoe is the local concentration of enterprises of a value chain centring on microtechnologies in Schleswig-Holstein. Next to enterprises, the closely interconnected cluster partners are research institutes, universities, education networks, financing institutions, public authorities, and a far-reaching portfolio of services for companies and start-ups.


These location benefits increase the value creation for the enterprises and enforce competitive advantages. As motor of the region, the cluster offers contacts, cooperations and knowledge transfer. It is not just the hightech companies who profit, but all companies in the cluster. Given the same overall conditions, cluster companies will work more successfully and profitably than their isolated competitors in other regions.


Convince yourselves of our strengths and become part of Hightech Itzehoe.
