Troyes Champagne Métropole, the Champagne region’s historic capital, has made a name for itself as a prime destination for business – a cultural, heritage and environmental hotspot with just the right mix of industrial expertise and cutting-edge innovation in high value-added sectors.

The area’s prime location has already won over plenty of world-class manufacturing firms, as well as a host of small and medium-sized enterprises across all sectors and industries – it is currently home to a staggering 14,672 different companies.

The Technopole tech cluster is a major source of support for entrepreneurs, and Troyes Champagne Métropole was ranked the eighth best place for business in the 2016 L’Express L’Entreprise list (in the 100,000-200,000 population category).

The area is also home to several outstanding industries and sectors such as agri-food, recycling, hemp, textiles, the silver economy and renewables – each with exceptional growth potential and spawning dozens of new projects each year in research labs, adding yet more fuel to the area’s reputation for excellence.
