Due to a structural change in the German economy during the 1990s, the textile mill Otto (est. 1879) had to close down.

Other businesses include the corrugated board manufacturer Seyfert, the conveyance company Nagel, the electric appliances manufacturer Electrostar and the plastic processing plant Volz.
