At Inditex, we’ve known the advantages of Aragon since the mid-80s, when we opened our first stores here.
At Inditex, we've known the advantages of Aragon since the mid-80s, when we opened our first stores there. So, when it came time for us to choose a location for a new logistics center, Zaragoza immediately came to mind.
The availability of reliable transport and communications networks is testimony to the commitment of the local public authorities. They have always been there when we needed them. Without their close cooperation, we would never have been able to get our entire logistics center up and running in just 18 months.
Inditex is one of the world's largest fashion distributors with 2,791 stores in 64 countries, including Zara, Massimo Dutti, and Bershka.

More important still are the growth possibilities and potential for adaptation. The close and constant collaboration with Aragón Exterior has led us to consider the organization part of our team, demonstrating great dedication and interest in each potential project we have presented.”

“When it came to setting up in Aragon, we looked at Zaragoza’s exceptional strategic position on both the Iberian Peninsula (located in the center of Spain’s industrial quadrant) and in Southern Europe, as well as its excellent transportation and services network. We took the productivity and work ethic found in Aragon into consideration. Factors such as the professionalism, efficiency and high skills of our employees were essential to making the decision, as well as the institutional support we have always received from local authorities.”

At Vodafone, we chose Aragon for the region’s productivity and quality of life.
At Vodafone, we chose Aragon for the region's productivity and quality of life. High productivity coupled with low labor costs makes for an extremely cost-efficient operation. And exceptional quality of life makes it easy to attract and retain employees.
We find the work force here highly creative and flexible. The local universities provide excellent technical training. And the enviable lifestyle here means we can always find new employees willing to move from Madrid or Barcelona. We also find that working for a big international company, right here in Aragon, gives our employees a sense of ownership that can be difficult to find elsewhere.
Vodafone - the world's leading mobile telecommunications company - established its global research campus in Walqa Technology Park in 2004.
