Safran S.A. is based in Paris, France. Via its German operations, Safran mainly supplies aircraft equipment and interiors to customers around the world, among them large accounts such as Airbus. The engineers working for Safran in Germany are involved in all of the company's development programmes, including projects e.g. in the area of 3D printing and next-generation connectivity solutions.

The groundwork for the tesa SE works in Hamburg-Hausbruch was laid in 1971. Since then, the plant has been continuously expanded and is now, thanks to its state-of-the-art cleanroom facility and solvent-free production lines, one of the world’s most modern plants. In 2015, a new polymerisation facility was put into operation, giving the company more flexibility in the production of modern adhesives. Moreover, a new production hall and a new hazardous goods warehouse were built – alongside a combined heat and power (CHP) system that, in addition to generating electricity, recovers the waste heat by-product as thermal energy for heating and cooling. Today, a workforce of some 600 employees produces single- and double-sided adhesive tape as well as special products and system solutions for processing in high-performance industries, such as the automotive, electrical, paper, printing, construction supply, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.


Continuing its 140-year history in Hamburg, the traditional Holsten brewery of Carlsberg Deutschland GmbH opened its new location in Hamburg-Hausbruch in 2019. With the new building, the company is adapting to the changing environment of the brewing industry: shorter distances, state-of-the-art facilities, optimised infrastructure and no restrictions regarding night work are but a few of the benefits of the new site. With the completion of the new brewing facility at Holsten Brauerei, Carlsberg Deutschland GmbH was able to enhance a number of different processes. While the Hausbruch site can be accessed and exited via the A7 motorway (exit 31), on-site logistics have also been improved, featuring e.g. terminals for self-check-in and check-out, waiting zones, as well as special areas for unloading empties and loading vehicles with various brewery products.
