Silkeborg Municipality

Silkeborg Municipality – a green centre for the wind industry

Silkeborg Municipality is situated in central Jutland, in some of Denmark’s most beautiful countrysides.

The business climate is dynamic, forward-thinking, and highly qualified in the fields of manufacturing, service and know-how.

Our focus is on growth, so by converting environmental and energy challenges into solutions, we create new business-opportunities and jobs.

Over a 10 year period we have seen a marked increase in population in the municipality. This with the rising level of education and job opportunities makes it easy to recruit both well qualified manpower and competent managerial staff.

“Invest in Denmark” is a professional service-team, ready to assist international companies in getting off to a good start in Silkeborg Municipality.
