Russia - the best European country for manufacturing

0 21 March 2014

Russia is the world’s 7th best manufacturing location, according to global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield’s “Manufacturing Index 2014”. 

The list, which is designed to illustrate what parameters manufacturers need to consider when evaluating the most suitable locations to expand or relocate, is dominated by Asian countries, with Malaysia taking 1st place, followed by Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand and China.  

However, Russia is the top European country on the list, ahead of Switzerland in 12th, Poland in 13th and Sweden in 16th.

In order to compile the list Cushman & Wakefield compared the costs, risks and conditions for industrial manufacturing in the 30 top industrial manufacturers. Relevant factors include logistics, chance of natural disasters, economic risk and the cost of electricity and labour.
