    Extension of the PIPA ("ZAC de la Baccolanche")

  • The PIPA’s creation in the late 60s can be traced to two sources. Reference is mainly made to the project concerning the development of a second new city located at the gateway to Lyon and Geneva.

    While carrying out preliminary studies, the Plaine de l’Ain Industrial Estate demonstrates its capacities for housing industries: low level of urbanisation, very flat ground, soil of little agronomic interest, ample water table, favourable location on the Lyon-Geneva route, and architectonics of a high standard, amongst other factors.

  • To provide affirmation of its undertakings, the Plaine de l’Ain Industrial Estate is the leading ISO 14001 certified and EMAS registered European Industrial Estate.

  • Since its establishment, PAMPA has supported 65 businesses with a retention rate of 82%. These businesses have allowed for the creation of 162 jobs as they progress through the PAMPA.

  • The establishment of the Industrial Estate’s “ZAC de la Baccolanche” allows for the sale of tracts of land over an area spanning more than 50 hectares
