The district, with the regional growth areas of Ludwigsfelde and Luckenwalde, has developed its own strong profile - mainly industrial - through extensive investment in infrastructure and the establishment of well-known companies. The commercial landscape is shaped by companies such as Mercedes-Benz, MTU, Rolls-Royce and ThyssenKrupp Umformtechnik, Luckenwalde Biotechnology Park, the Freight Village Berlin South (GVZ) in Grossbeeren, Schönhagen Airport, Baruth Wood Competence Centre and other industrial estates and business parks.
