Representatives of the Administrative District
IPI GmbH, Lichtenau 
The enterprise IPI GmbH, an innovative partner in the field of information management, dates back to 1996. Currently, the company employs 17 people. Since 2001, IPI, a partner of Citrix Gold and Microsoft Gold for Enterprise Solutions, has been concentrating on providing services and solutions based on the Microsoft system. Other areas on which IPI focuses are net platforms and server based computing for medium sized companies, service industry and public administration. However, the IT-specialists working in co-operation with Rödl & Partners have their core competency in the field of usability (applicability), software-infrastructure, adjustment of standard software and training of employees.

Mr. Holger Dümpelmann, CEO of IPI GmbH Lichtenau states that it has many advantages to have the industrial site within the administrative area Ansbach "because our company being the only Microsoft Gold partner in Northern Bavaria can gain a lot from the central location as well as the good infrastructure with respect to our services and products."

UBK-Logistik KG, Dietenhofen
UBK-Logistics KG, Dietenhofen was founded in 1989. Throughout Europe, the company serves as partner in the domain of logistics as far as its IT-products and solutions are concerned.
The forwarding service called SPEDLOG developed by UBK-Logistics was created "from practical experience for practical application" in order to respond to the increasing demands of transportation. Industrial groups, medium sized companies and small sized enterprises use the SPEDLOG forwarding system if they have to deal with topics like collective transports, long distance traffic, loading, invoicing and export or import transactions. UBK-Logistics is an expert enterprise for e-commerce, e-business, forwarders and loading industry.

Mr. Ernst Albrecht Kahl, owner of the company UBK-Logistics, Dietenhofen says, that their industrial site is ideal, "because our qualified staff enjoys working in a most wonderful area and we can get in touch easily with our customers by being tied up to a good infrastructure".

Example of setting up a company:
The enterprise proAlpha systems technology settled in Rothenburg ob der Tauber in 1998. ProAlpha systems technology has about 30 employees and the company is specialized in the implementation of business software solutions by using standard software proAlpha for medium sized enterprises in Southern Germany.
This IT-service company regards as its most essential resource the very well trained and highly motivated employees. The IT-experts especially like the quality of life in Franconia and the beautiful landscape. Moreover, they enjoy the culture of this area. Both, the wonderful landscape and the culture of this region have a motivating and innovating impact. The famous city Rothenburg ob der Tauber is ideally tied up to the motorways A6 and A7 and thus, it has got a central location in Southern Germany. This excellent infrastructure proves to be a most important aspect for entrepreneurs looking for an industrial site.

The unique combination of all the above mentioned aspects and the well-functioning co-operation with the University of Applied Sciences are seen as the strongest points in favor of choosing an industrial site within the administrative district. The factors described are also the basis for a continuing positive development of the region.
