During the last few years, Sant Quirze del Valles has been through an important process of change and transformation in many levels, which has given the city one of the best qualities of life in the county. This has been possible thanks to its conservation as a “town-character” city, the natural green environment surrounding it, its strategic location within the region close to cities such as Sabadell, Terrassa and Barcelona, and its position close to the key network of transport connections. As a result, it is an ideal place to live and work in.
Its business network is one of the most important economic instruments of la “Vila” (township) and definitely a challenge for our identity. Close to a population of 20,000 inhabitants, the city has 5 Business & Industry Estates (Can Casablanca, Can Feu, Can Torras-Can Llobet, Can Canals and Can Corbera-Les Fonts), which host more than 300 businesses contributing to employment, wealth and added value to the area.
Sant Quirze is a town open to new businesses and innovation. To help this purpose, the Town Hall has been a support for a business and commercial network that currently faces social challenges, having done so by enhancing the Economic Development Centre with the Business Customer Services, located at the Masia Can Barra, a remarkable building part of the city’s historical heritage. Its main task has been to gather together interests of both businesses and the local public administration. Through this service, businesses have access to a consultation or petition facility that puts them in touch with the right administrative department, reaching a convenient celerity and a tracking tool for their formal requests. As a creator of business resources, it offers an education service that contributes to the local businesses growth and development.
Finally, la Masia de Can Barra also offers trade, employment and entrepreneurial services.
