A strategic location
The Plaine de l’Ain Industrial Park (PIPA) is located a stone’s throw from the Lyon urban area. As such, it is able to capitalise on the dynamic environment of France’s second-largest economic hub, with a potential workforce of more than 2.9 million economically active inhabitants.
An attractive region
With around 140 businesses already on site, PIPA makes a major contribution to the economic attractiveness of Lyon (the second most popular city for business in France, behind Paris). It is located in France’s most heavily industrialised department.
A dense motorway network
PIPA is served by a first-rate motorway network, and is just a few hours’ drive from some of Europe’s major conurbations:
- 90 minutes drive from Geneva,
- 3 hours 30 minutes from Marseille
- 4 hours from Turin,
- 5 hours from Paris and Milan,
- 5 hours 15 minutes from Luxembourg
- 6 hours 30 minutes from Barcelona.
PIPA is just 25 minutes from Lyon Saint-Exupéry international airport and its TGV (high-speed rail) station, with links to Europe’s key economic hubs in just 2 hours.
