WHY INVEST IN LIMBURG?

WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE

Limburg’s labor force is multilingual by nature. We have the world’s languages at our doorstep. Within just a few minutes, you’ll find yourself in the midst of Dutch-Flemish, Francophone, German, or Anglophone Europe. And we speak it all.

We are the heart of Europe

The European market is not about to be ignored. Its 500 million consumers makes it one of the world’s largest markets.

WE REALLY DO KNOW BETTER

Limburg offers your company a wide range of knowledge and research institutes turning out a well-educated population ready and willing to help you sell your products and services.

SUCCESS STORIES

"The German-speaking market is very important for Mercedes-Benz.”

Mercedes-Benz

Thor Tielemans

The German-speaking market is very important for Mercedes, which explains why many team members working in Maastricht are of German origin. “About 46% of our employees are cross-border workers. That is a major advantage of this location, right on the border. Another advantage is that the universities and colleges in Limburg host many international students. These young people speak the languages we need and are keen to earn some extra money in their free time. They strengthen our flexi-worker team".

"It is no coincidence that the Medtronic international distribution centre was established here in Limburg"

Medtronic

Zikko Zoer

Medtronic considers it important to invest in its workforce, but equally important to invest in its future employees. That is one of the reasons why the company entered into cooperation with the Leeuwenborgh Regional Training Centre. To address the tight regional labour market in the years ahead, the business community, education system and public sector must unite in their efforts to assure a supply of sufficiently qualified personnel.

"In Limburg we are, by default, quite German-oriented and we have seamlessly blended the German culture into ours".

Braden Europe

Bert Nix

"Developing components for power plants is pure custom work, explains Bert Nix. “No power plant is the same. Geographical and legal factors, as well as the local climate, largely determine the design of each plant. This calls for very specific know-how and innovation. Thanks to our location, near the University of Aachen, and the much more targeted expertise in mechanical engineering in Germany, we have succeeded in setting up intensive partnerships with companies in the German hinterland.”

European Headquarters

Your Gateway to Success in Europe

Located at the heart of Europe’s largest markets, Limburg has established itself as a magnet for international companies and a emerging site for business headquarters, whether regional or international.

Data Centers

Number Crunchers to the World

Limburg -and specifically the region around Heerlen- has a powerful cluster of financial, administrative, banking, statistics, pension, and information-processing organizations to help you get your paperwork in order, develop the most favorable taxation model, and set up pensions for your employees.

Industries

Industrious Limburg

Limburg is the most industrialized province in the Netherlands. With its 80,000 jobs, industry constitutes 25% of total added value and 19% of its total employment.

Marketing and Sales

Marketing Magnet

Limburg is home to marketing and sales operations for a wide range of multinational companies. The Netherlands as a whole has established itself as a magnet for foreign-owned marketing and sales operations. However, Limburg’s strategic location provides the perfect springboard into the European market with access to 95% of Europe’s most lucrative consumer markets within 24 hours of Amsterdam or Rotterdam.

Logistics and Distribution

Multimodal Accessibility

Limburg is an ideal hub for logistics and distribution operations. We are within close proximity to:

  • Airports in Amsterdam, Liège, Düsseldorf and Brussels;
  • Sea ports in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Antwerp;
  • Inland waterways of the Meuse river, South Willem's Canal, and Juliana Canal and onward to the Rhine inland shipping system;
  • Rail connections for freight and passengers
  • And, of course, international roadways.

Service Centers

Customer Centric

The Netherlands’ strategic location, well-developed telecommunications and transportation infrastructure, and international, service-oriented culture all combine to provide an ideal environment to create a European Shared Service Center (SSC).
