Limbach-Oberfrohna is situated in the manufacturing district of Chemnitz. It has a public park and a monument to the composer Johannes Pache. Its industries in the past included the making of worsteds, cloth, silk and sewing-machines, dyeing and bleaching. However, these industries collapsed almost completely after the reunification of Germany in 1990. Today, the biggest employers in the town are Siemens VDO, a former branch of the Siemens AG and manufacturer of car-supplies together with other mechanical-engineering firms.
