This summer, the state-owned economic development agency NRW.INVEST honored four foreign companies for their outstanding investments in, and clear commitment to, North Rhine-Westphalia as a business location. This year’s NRW.INVEST Award went to the US online retailer Amazon (for creating ca. 6,500 jobs over the last eight years), the British systems house Computacenter (for its new EUR 40 million German headquarters in Kerpen), the Japanese high-tech company Shimadzu (for opening a new innovation center in Düsseldorf), and the Chinese automotive supplier Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (for its new innovation center in Neuss).
