German media: Due to the high cost of energy, companies from Germany are transferring their production abroad

Germany is becoming less and less attractive country for doing business, especially in the manufacturing sector. Due to the high cost of energy, companies from Germany are transferring their production abroad.


This opinion is expressed by the German portal Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (DWN).

The German media notes that this process began even before the rise in energy prices, since even then it became more profitable for manufacturers to move abroad than to continue their activities in Germany. In the period leading up to the energy crisis, about 60 companies withdrew their production facilities from Germany. The publication claims that the country faces a "complete exodus" of the domestic industry.

DWN notes that in Germany, the question of the threat of a complete de-industrialization of the country associated with rising prices for electricity and other resources is increasingly being raised. It is noted that the rise in price began around the same time when Putin announced the start of a special operation in Ukraine. This led to an increase in the cost of production of German enterprises and, as a result, a decrease in its competitiveness in the world market.

Actually, one of the main competitors for American manufacturers has always been European countries, especially Germany. Therefore, the weakening of its economic potential is in the national interests of the United States.

      With the decline of the economy in Germany and the advanced (in the economic sense) EU countries, there is an opportunity for Russia to profit from this path. good

      Let's, gentlemen, scientists, associate professors with candidates, think about how we can profit at the expense of the EU by offering more than even the United States preferential terms for attracting the business we need from the EU to the vastness of our vast country. Still, not all local businessmen are ardent Russophobes and we must and can interest them in working for us and for our own benefit.
      So why not. fellow

        and to be honest, I do not see in the public domain such proposals from leaders and from the apparatus of officials. there is no information about the meetings of local businessmen with our businessmen or apparatchiks. so it's a secret. and if there are such proposals, then most likely they go closed

          I agree. A good way of "coercion" and they should have been used long ago, but the trouble in the government was a huge pack of liberals and soros. I would like to hope that with the beginning of the SVO, many of them were dumped, and the rest will be fired in the near future.

              The Germans and the French themselves have long been all in Canada and the USA. Naturally, the old factory shops and various furnaces will not be carried on. All you need is goodwill, trademarks, brains and intellectual property. Even money is not needed, because the Bidon has allocated 62 million to those who wish. as help, but if they come with their own money, even better.

          The offer is good. The only thing is that it is possible to sell part of the gas at spot prices. And keep prices low in the domestic market. The mechanism, in this case, will also work. Yes, and there will be an influx of income into the treasury

          If it's rational, you're right. But it will be a little "metaphysical". After that, many will say: "No, well, if so, then of course. Who could know such a thing."

          In the "Collective Farm named after the West" the elements will "play tricks" a little (or a lot?), and they will forget about confrontation with anyone there for 100 years. Their rhetoric will change to "goeben zi peace bitte etwas zu essen". "Alpine begging is a holy cause."

          Irrational? Yes, that's why I believe.

        We have energy resources, but what do we not? but there are no labor resources i.e. people, for construction, and even then we are taking Uzbeks, and there are no sales markets, because they have imposed sanctions on all sides.

      “You are a company from Germany and are considering a presence in the US? Oklahoma is 100% the right place then,” Governor Stitt said. “We are located in the heart of the USA. Wages are 40% lower than in California. And people work hard."
      The most important argument for attracting German companies is cheap energy. In this matter, "we are number one," says Stitt. According to him, 40% of energy comes from renewable sources; they are in third place in the production of natural gas. "And our regulators are ready to make your job easier."
      In Oklahoma alone, more than 60 German companies responded to the call, including Lufthansa, Aldi, Fresenius and Siemens. Corporations have invested about $300 million in recent expansions, according to the state.
      The US has traditionally been an important investment destination for German companies - and US states are now actively emphasizing this.
      “In 2020, we flew to Germany and visited BMWs, Porsches and Mercedes-Benz in Munich and Stuttgart,” says Wilson, the Georgia state secretary of commerce. Its governor, Brian Kemp, made the decision to travel in connection with the reorganization of German automakers: Georgia should become the center of electromobility - with the help of German companies.
      As part of the Quick Start training program, Georgia sends its employees to Germany. They spend time in a company that is willing to invest, get to know the company's culture - and test what skills the company needs. “We are training workers while the company is still setting up its new plant. Then he will be ready to work from the first day. Wilson himself has been to Germany five times in the last two years.
      The business-friendly attitude seems to be paying off. According to the government, German companies are among the largest foreign investors, having created the second-highest number of jobs in Georgia in 2021 and 2022, after companies from Korea. Since last fall alone, half a dozen German companies have made Georgia a destination for investment: Aurubis is investing $340 million in a new metal processing plant, Hapag-Lloyd is investing $18 million in a new North American headquarters, Böhringer Ingelheim is investing $57 million in a research center.
      Companies going to the US are looking for more than just cheap energy. Given the increasingly uncertain political situation in the world, it is also about reducing dependence on troubled markets and supply chains, at least to some extent. In particular, the auto industry is looking to reduce its dependence on China - and is expanding into the US.
      In June, Volkswagen opened a $22 million battery lab at its Chattanooga, Tennessee facility. This will lead to an in-house battery experience, VW North America CEO Scott Keogh explained at the opening ceremony. VW wants to play a leading role in electrification, and the location of the Chattanooga plant plays an important role. By 2027, the company will invest a total of $7,1 billion in North America.
      It also includes a new subsidiary: VW wants to win over American buyers with the revived Scout pickup brand. Keogh is already looking for a site for the Scout plant, insiders say, with about a dozen sites on the short list - including several states in the US South all the way to New Mexico. "We'd love to have Scout come to us," says Secretary of Commerce Wilson.
      In March, Mercedes-Benz opened its new battery plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. "I like it here!" exclaimed CEO Ola Kellenius, who himself once worked in Alabama, at the opening. Mercedes wants to produce luxury electric SUVs and more than 100 batteries a year there.
      And BMW doesn't want to be left out either. In October, the Munich-based company plans to announce a new investment in electric mobility in Spartanburg, South Carolina, at the group's largest plant.
      But it's not just the auto companies that are investing - and it's not just the southern US that's benefiting: pharmaceutical giant Bayer has invested $100 million in a new biotech center in Boston, Massachusetts. A few days ago, specialty chemicals company Evonik opened its new "Innovation Center" in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Investment: over $50 million Evonik also wants to build a $220 million manufacturing facility in Indiana with the US government.
      And BASF wants to invest as much as $25 billion in North America between 2022 and 2026 - which equates to about 15% of global investment.

    They are coming to what they should have come to with such a policy and intensifying confrontation with Russia. Further irony - they will give up electricity, switch to farming, collecting herbs and roots, and, if possible, fishing. Instead of beer, they will drink herbal infusion with the addition of fly agaric to make it smell, instead of sausages, dried fish (if something else is found) ... But the ecology will become amazingly green for joy. In a word, live and be happy.

    Germany's surplus was 100 yards, and with this money the Germans sponsored all of Europe. Now they suddenly discover that there is no surplus. for a couple of years, of course, due to loans, the whole of Europe can hold out, but no more.
