Hengelo has been growing due to its metallurgical industry, which traditionally required highly trained workers. Its industrial roots and great location attract international companies such as Thales, Akzo Nobel, Siemens, Delaval, Stork Plastic Machinery, Stork Thermeq and Eaton to step into Hengelo. The technology-driven research university University of Twente is located between Hengelo and the neigbouring city Enschede. Hengelo is definitely a pleasant living area  with a resident population and working population of more than 81,000 and 47,000 respectively.
