Stollberg is located in central Saxony at the intersection of the federal roads B169 and B180, right on the Autobahn A72. As a result of this location, the city offers optimal logistical conditions for its businesses. It is at once at the foot of the Erzgebirge, within the Chemnitz-Zwickau automobile centre, in the Saxon industrial triangle of Chemnitz-Leipzig-Dresden, and in close proximity to the Czech Republic.
In the Stollberger Tor industrial zone, 42 companies occupy 95% of its total area of 52 hectares. There are additional newly created zones available right on the A72. Our companies share one thing in common: they are innovative and trendsetting. High technology development, surface finishing and the automobile industry are only a few of the strong elements in the valuable portfolio of our industrial zones.
The service sector is concentrated in our inner city solo enterprises and commercial areas. As a major centre, the city performs administrative and economic functions for an area of interest that includes about 90,000 people.
