Can Parera, strategic location in the Conca of Òdena
With these new investments, Can Parera becomes an important economic engine for Castellolí and the Conca of Òdena. The industrial sector incorporates new sectors such as agri-food, a highly consolidated sector that generates a high number of jobs.
The location of Can Parera, next to the Motor Park of Castellolí, is helping to promote economic activity and the industrial fabric of the area. At present, INCASÒL still has a 3,000 m2 plot available for cross-section industry.
