Of the 17,500 or so employees subject to social insurance contributions, around 11,000 are employed in the chemical industry which is therefore the most important employer of the business location of Burghausen and its surrounding region encompassing a radius of around 60 km. The largely medium-sized service companies, suppliers and construction and manual trade companies employ a total of around 2,700 experienced staff who are supplemented by highly qualified employees in trade and commerce.

The success of the companies through qualified employees is reflected not least in the number of patents registered in the administrative district of Altötting which is double the national average.

Burghausen as a ‘job engine’

Of the 17,500 or so employees subject to social insurance contributions, over 13,000 commute from the surrounding region. To this end Burghausen acts as a true ‘job engine’ and is the region’s most important work location: From 2009 to 2013 alone the employment figures increased from 16,800 to 17,500 and the number of commuters rose from around 12,800 to over 13,400. Alongside the many employees who commute daily from the immediately surrounding region to their workplaces in Burghausen a large number of people also commute from neighbouring Upper Austria and Lower Bavaria to Burghausen’s companies.
