BIS Bremerhavener Gesellschaft für Investitionsförderung und Stadtentwicklung mbH
BIS Bremerhavener Gesellschaft für Investitionsförderung und Stadtentwicklung mbH is responsible for developing, strengthening and marketing Bremerhaven as a business location on behalf of the City of Bremerhaven and the State of Bremen.
Promoting entrepreneurial commitment and developing the city into a modern business and living location – we see this as a central task of business development in Bremerhaven. The overriding goal is to create and secure jobs.
Bremerhaven has a maritime tradition that goes back decades. Building on this, the maritime city is now Europe’s fourth-largest container port, a leader in automobile imports and exports, a center of excellence for logistics and maritime technologies, a major innovative location for the fish and food industry, and a unique location in Europe for offshore wind energy.
Companies in the city can draw on highly specialized and renowned scientific institutions such as the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology, the Institute for Maritime Transport and Logistics and the various institutes of the university.
