Establish in Grou
Just to the east of Leeuwarden sits Grou, the water-sports village. It's known as a place surrounded by nature for water-sport lovers, tourists, and those who live there. A number of companies and organisations also see Grou as an excellent place to situate themselves. The business park Frisia was, just this year, expanded for a reason.
A draw for both tourists and businesspeople - Expansion
For businesspeople and their companies that might wish to locate in Grou, it's good to know that the village is hugely accessible. You'll see it from the A32, whenever you go from Drenthe or Overijssel to Leeuwarden. Aside from this, a train station and the Prinses Margrietkanaal cover other forms of transport!
Sitting by the Pikmeer, and with the Natuurpark De Alde Feanen within walking distance, it's no wonder that Grou is a draw for all types of day-trippers. You can find wonderful places to walk or bike, all surrounded by beautiful nature, but the best activities take place on water. A significant number of companies that are based in Grou are in the water-sport sector.
For space and nature
The large number of rowing and sailing races across the season make sure that there is always a large supply of visitors to Grou. All of these people must, naturally, eat, drink, and sleep somewhere, and a thriving economy has grown up around this. It's not only the centre of the village that has access to the waters that surround it, at the north-western end of the village you'll find the business park Frisia, which is stuffed with business service providers, building providers, technical suppliers; and a large number of boat-related companies. The ask for space in Grou was so strong that it was decided to grow the space by 4.2 hectares in 2019.
Space, water-sports, nature, and accessibility. Grou has it all. And, it's an ideal place to locate you business!
