The reconversion of the Bosch Site into an industrial campus in Vénissieux
The new industrial campus in Vénissieux will cover the 11 hectares of the current Bosch site, which is about to be reconverted in the context of a redevelopment project led by Lyon Métropole
This site has housed industrial companies for over 80 years. When start-up BoostHEAT (manufacturer of a revolutionary boiler that reduces the cost and environmental impact of heating) set up in the area with Aderly’s assistance, it was the beginning of an innovative re-industrialisation scheme at the Bosch Vénissieux site, enabling the transformation of SME’s and medium-sized companies.
Strengthened by its rich history and economic development in the industry sector, the future industrial campus of Venissieux will offer a unique environment for companies, which will benefit from the know-how and excellent reputation of the Bosch site. The reconversion project will make it possible to accommodate over 300 professionals by 2021.
The future Venissieux industrial campus is located near the city’s ring-road and major motorways. Moreover it is well served by Lyon’s public transport service (TCL) with the tram and various bus lines.
