Why investing in Val Brembilla?

Val Brembilla has a recognizable territory, embedded with work culture, a cohesive and high-quality area, far from secondary factors to the competitive challenges to assume in a global relations’ context.

A now secular for its characteristic local history manufacturing district. Indeed, Val Brembilla is home to a manufacturing system, which is undoubtedly relevant as compared to its demography (79 companies, over 1,400 employees compared to 4,328 inhabitants), and capable of paying great attention to changes within a constantly renewing and sustainable industry, that operates mainly in sectors related to the processing, production and distribution of mechanical components, wood and plastic materials.

To coordinate local businesses and services and facilitate the qualification, the skills exchange and the creation of place and citizenship economic value, around the excellence centers of the Kilometro Rosso, the Point, in the surroundings of dalminese, the Municipality activated the sharing of missions, of businesses and citizens’ services, of simplification and innovation rules and procedure for the promotion of a valley district. This is one of the priorities for the activation of clusters or production parks, for a better coordination of companies and services, in line with the Framework of commitments recently made by the Chamber of Commerce, the Municipality of Bergamo, the Province of Bergamo, the University of Bergamo, Confindustria, Companies & Territory, Trade Unions and UBI Banca.

Administration and producers also use a Co-development Pact, where companies aim at environmental objectives and are available for sharing, while the administration guarantees support services and active valorization actions. Briefly, it presents itself as a specific site focused on the qualification of the local vocations

The Pact plans to exploit the opportunities both in regional planning and in Industry 4.0 and corporate welfare incentives, to guide the local system to become a cluster.

We are therefore working on the implementation of an attractiveness and efficiency project for the local production system through the activation of policies to support the entrepreneurial system and the generational transmission of industrial competence making the existing informal district evident and qualifying it as widespread APEA (ecologically equipped production area) according to the provisions of Legislative Decree 112/98. The goal of the APEA will be producing economies, relations between local actors and help for the creation of new businesses.
