Our core activities
Saxion has existed in its current form since 1998, however its roots go all the way back to 1875. Although we are constantly looking to the future, we are also proud of our past. That too is part of who we are: the place we feel deeply connected to, with its rich technological history. Located in the Twente region of the Eastern Netherlands, home to our Enschede campus, technological advances led to the large scale development of the textile industry. The Apeldoorn and Deventer locations are situated in the Ijsselstreek (named after the river IJssel) where once the first printers dared to embrace revolutionary printing technology and so help spread knowledge and ideas.
Thanks to the geographical position of the Nertherlands, Saxion is perfectly positioned between major European countries such as Belgium, France and Germany. Many leading companies are situated here for that very reason. Furthermore, the Netherlands is one of the world's most innovative nations, partly due to the strong cooperation between businesses and education.
