Over the past years, Gdánsk, Gdynia and Sopot (locally called the Tri-City) have seen an increasing amount of large companies setting up production facilities in the region. Tri-City is quickly becoming a well-established business hub attracting companies from all of Europe. Here are four reasons why.
Location. Geographically the Tri-City is located perfectly for producing companies. Situated along major transit routes, Gdánsk, Gdynia and Sopot serve as the link between the northwestern parts of Europe and the rest of the continent. The seaports of Gdánsk and Gdynia are two of Polands major ports, and the only ports in the Baltics with direct connections to southeast Asia. Finally, the airport of Gdánsk has a wide range of connections internationally making it easy to travel in and out for business.
Educated workforce. With almost 20 universities and over 70000 students, the Tri-City is one of the most well educated areas in Europe. The high living standards and growing amount of companies in the area has made it an attractive place to live, which makes it easy for companies to find skilled employees.
Strong growth. Large companies relocating to the area and a strong growth over the last decade has made the Tri-City a very desirable investment location. Especially the business districts of Gdánsk and Gdynia are seeing large investments being made in modern office hubs, skyscrapers and renovated tenements. With a strong startup culture, investments in the area are bound to keep increasing, and Tri-City to keep growing.
Culture. When business is not calling, Tri-City has something for everyone. An interesting history dating back a thousand years, great food, sand beaches and a rich nightlife are reasons enough to visit the area. Fun fact: For half of its history Gdánsk has been known as Danzig, and was the Hanseatic leagues largest city during the 15th and 16th century.
