Step 2: Customised solutions to set up here

Whether your company specialises in manufacturing, logistics or services, whether you plan to buy or rent, Hauts-de-France has the ideal site for growing your business in France.

So far, so good: you’ve short-listed Hauts-de-France as a potential site for your project. Now let’s take a closer look at the solutions this region offers.

You have two options:

  • Identify a site for a new venture
  • Acquire an existing business

Customised solutions for your project

Your special adviser starts by analysing your specifications and then uses your land and building requirements to prepare a set of proposals, including potential set-up sites that match your plans in detail. The sheer diversity of our region, which stretches from the outer limits of Paris to the Belgian border, with the United Kingdom immediately across the English Channel, means you’re guaranteed a wide choice of sites.

We can offer land for construction, warehouses, integrated platforms, prime office space, and rental premises in business parks, business incubators and technology parks—and more.

Visit potential sites

Once we’ve provided our first proposals and answered all of your questions, it’s up to you to draw up a short list of sites with the most appeal.

Our people will then prepare a tour of these sites. Since they know Hauts-de-France inside out, you can expect an optimised programme including opportunities to get a first-hand look at the quality of life in our region.

Should you want to return for a second look at one or more sites, our experts are happy to organise more visits.

Once you’ve made your choice, they will assist you with the paperwork needed to set up:

  • Deed of sale / lease
  • Application for permits as required
  • Recruitment of your first employee
  • And more

Acquire an existing business
in Hauts-de-France

Want to get started immediately with an existing operation instead of launching a greenfield venture?

When you purchase a going concern in the region, you can tap into an existing operation with all the resources you need—qualified labour, ready-to-use machinery, a supply chain and more. You save time and potential start-up costs, since the business you acquire already has a client base.

Nord France Invest has a powerful network of contacts that we can use to identify regional businesses in search of an international investor.

Based on your specifications—the type of business you’re looking for, the number of employees, sales and key technologies—we craft a targeted search, identify businesses that meet your criteria and put you in contact with them. Negotiating the right deal is then up to you. Like all our services, this search is totally confidential, and we sign NDAs with all parties concerned.
