Formation of EG DU as of 01.01.1999
EG DU was formed on the basis of the resolution of the City Council of 09.11.1998, as a municipal subsidiary, with effect from 01.01.1999.
In the process, the development companies for Marxloh (EGM) and Bruckhausen (EGB) which were previously both formed for a limited time, and parts of the Marxloh and Bruckhausen neighbourhood projects (to the extent that they were not transferred to the
'GfB Gemeinnützige Gesellschaft für Beschäftigungsförderung mbH' (GfB Non-profit company for employment promotion)) were merged.
As a result of the permanent and flexible possibilities opened up for the assignment of the agency, the prerequisites for the continuous development and implementation of holistic concepts for integrated neighbourhood renewal in Duisburg were created.
