Economic Region Heilbronn-Franken (WHF)
The Wirtschaftsregion Heilbronn-Franken GmbH (WHF) has been operating for over 20 years as a regional economic development and location marketing company for the Heilbronn-Franken region. It is the first point of contact for pan-regional economic development concerns. In addition, the WHF is a recognized partner in regional development projects, all of which have a strategic character. Furthermore, the WHF represents the region vis-à-vis the ministries relevant to the area of responsibility at the state and federal level, e.g. as a regional cluster contact. Due to the existing shareholder structure, the WHF is the link between the municipal side and the economy. This leads to a high degree of networking inside and outside the region. In accordance with the industry-neutral approach of the WHF, there are many contacts in the companies. In addition, the WHF is often also an intermediary and link between the regional actors. This fact results in a high degree of networking inside and outside the region.

Alliance for Transformation
The Alliance for Transformation is an initiative that is intended to support the incipient transformation process of the Heilbronn economic region, especially in the automotive industry, the metal and electrical industry and mechanical engineering, through the cooperation of key regional actors in the Heilbronn-Franken region. Digitalization, mobility transition, new forms of propulsion and the increased shortage of skilled workers in recent years are just a few examples of the commitment. The various crises are currently accelerating the trends and challenges that have been smouldering for some time. They require an adaptation of existing business models in order to maintain the competitiveness of companies in the region. Existing personnel need to be trained and many investments have to be made. Small and medium-sized enterprises in particular cannot cope with this process alone, as enormous investments are required. The Alliance for Transformation wants to accompany this process through meaningful networking of all key state, operational, political, and municipal actors in the region. Concrete measures and work packages serve as crucial instruments.
