Thanks to its excellent motorway connections (A57 and A44) the town boasts several business parks and light industrial estates, also featuring logistics operations. The "Fritz-Wendt-Straße" industrial estate in Strümp was developed because of the grinding technology company Wendt GmbH. The "In der Loh" business park in Lank is home to businesses in the SME sector such as Abit AG and KUPP GmbH, and features modern architecture in "Robert-Bosch-Straße".


The town sees frequent theatre plays and music events staged at the Forum Wasserturm, based in Lank Latum, predominantly featuring the comedy and satire genres. Dieter Nuhr and Frank Lüdecke have become regular artists over recent years. Each winter a popular folcloristic stage play is being performed in front of a 6,000+ strong audience.
