AS A COMPETITIVE AND COSMOPOLITAN DESTINATION, LYON ATTRACTS A GROWING NUMBER OF COMPANIES AND NEW TALENTS.
With 900 foreign-owned companies and 82 headquarters and administrative offices of companies with over 1000 employees, the Lyon region now boasts a density of decision centers higher than that of Barcelona and Manchester! Lyon has what it takes:
In November 2006, we signed the papers to buy a 3.7 hectare site (8 acres) to set up a bio-production unit in the Lyon TechSud business park. The project, conducted in partnership with Greater Lyon and Aderly, is part of a major plan for expanding our global activity in antibody production. Local expertise and technological know-how, along with the highly active Lyonbiopôle cluster, contributed to our choice of the Lyon area. The TechSud business park puts us in contact with world leaders in human and animal health, as well as research centers which offer us all sorts of possibilities for collaboration.
General Manager of Genzyme France
We chose Lyon for the headquarters of our main branch in France based on a range of criteria and advantages: proximity to Italy, a pleasant living environment, working conditions made easier by the vitality of the metropolitan area and the region, and many other reasons! Lyon is considered by Italy as a leading capital for services. We were also convinced by the ease of finding centrally located premises suitable for our current needs and for our future development, not to mention the commitment and efficiency of the Aderly team!
