The silhouette of Buchen im Odenwald
Selected structural data

The economic spectrum of Buchen comprises a healthy mixture of manufacture, trade, craft and provision of service.

Buchen is home to a lot of distinguished and well-established companies producing branded articles, which are in great demand. They range from car accessories to clay roof tiles, specialist machinery and sophisticated plastic cases, from plastic foil keyboards to photographic technology, material testing machines and cereal bars.

The fact that the people in charge have mainly focused on medium sized businesses in the past decades proves them right. While elsewhere the number of employees is in constant decline, Buchen has experienced a continuing employment increase.
