Key industries

Our industrial development was based on the development of the textile industry with wool production back in the 18th century. The area experienced a large industrial boom after 2nd world war and in the 1960s there were more than 400 textile factories in the Herning & Ikast-Brande area. Today we still have many fashion, design and interior companies, but production is no longer local. Other key industries include:

  • metal & production
  • trade, retail & logistics
  • events & tradeshow
  • food & agriculture
