Burghausen as a ‘job engine’
Of the 18,800 or so employees, 13,500 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 2021 alone, employment figures increased from 16,800 to around 18,800, and the number of commuters rose from approx. 12,800 to around 13,500. 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.
In the economic fields of structural and civil engineering, industrial plants and mechanical engineering, container construction, electrical engineering, heating and refrigeration engineering, pipeline construction, the complete range of IT services and the field of regenerative energies, Burghausen SMEs are hugely successful market operators and another powerful component of the Burghausen “job engine”.
