During 2017 we hope to publish a series of articles about local industries in Cantabria and their continuing struggle to survive.

The region has been hit hard by 10 years of recession and a lot of major companies have moved out or simply just closed down. Manufacturing has suffered the most and this has had a domino effect on secondary industries.

Through contacts I am continually bumping into people who are investing privately and a small army of new companies are popping up.

We also hope to bring you information on the possibilities that Cantabria can offer for new companies and the benefits this region can offer as well as looking into the pit falls that have to be avoided.

Industrial premises are available at competitive prices and there is a skilled, hard working workforce as well as Cantabria is a nice place to relocate where a good peaceful lifestyle can be enjoyed.
