At this point of time, Sabadell shares its condition of Valles Ocidental’s capital city with Terrassa. It is located in the county’s centre, alongside river Ripoll, has a population of 203,969 inhabitants, and is considered the fifth city within the county in number of people living in it.
Sabadell has six Business & Industry Estates: Can Roqueta, Poligon Sud-Oest (South West), Parc Industrial Ripoll, Can Feu, Gracia Nord (North) and Gracia Sud (South), altogether hosting 1,280 businesses. Sabadell Parc Empresarial is a new Business & Industry Estate, currently in phase of construction.
Although Sabadell has historically been an industrial city, these days’ business activities have evolved, and within the Estates we can find businesses belonging to any kind of economic sector.
In addition, the city offers key aspects that add value and are complimentary to the Estates: an easy access using public roads, public transport and an airport.
Diversification has succeeded in Sabadell’s industry and currently its economy does not rely on the textile trade. Otherwise, Sabadell has followed Catalonia’s economic transition to a more retail based economy.
Amongst all the businesses in Valles Occidental that have been registered in Sabadell’s Chamber of Commerce, one fourth are located in our city, thus conferring Sabadell its condition of economic force in the county.
