The Activence “craft village”, a turnkey solution for SMEs
As a welcome area for businesses in the Ardennes, the Val de Vence business park at Charleville-Mézières hosts the Activence “craft village”.
This proposal from the Ardenne Metropole local council, prepared by the Ardennes Institution for Equipment and Preparation is providing local turnkey solutions for small and medium craft enterprises for purchase or rental.
Each unit (160, 380 and 1,500 m²) has an area containing desks, a workshop with a 5m working height and partition door as well as sanitation and showers. The possibility of interconnection between each unit enables configuration of a larger surface of activity in response to different requirements.
It should also be noted that the arrangement of external spaces is especially functional and offers spacious areas for delivery, waiting and parking.
The site is in close proximity to the A34 motorway (Paris-Luxembourg-Cologne), the university and research centre at Moulin Le Blanc (CRITT-MDTS, high end education) with its location providing easy access to urban services (transport, catering, hotels, post office, public authorities, customs office etc.)
Located in BER area (“Bassin d’Emploi à Redynamiser”), this solution allows businesses to benefit from unique exemptions within France for social and tax expenses for 5 years (subject to conditions), on setting up in the Ardennes.
