Scottish company Trig Avionics selects Amersfoort as the place to open their second office

jul 16, 2018

The excellent rail and air connections for both customers and employees were the deciding factor for Scottish company Trig Avionics in selecting Amersfoort as the place to open their second office.

A year and a half after the European Commission declared the Utrecht region to be one the most competitive in Europe, the region continues to see a rising number of foreign companies choosing to base themselves in this central location.

Trig is now one of these companies. Based in Edinburgh, it specialises in communication and navigation equipment for smaller aircraft. CEO Andy Davis: "Europe is a key market and having a new base in the Netherlands will bring us closer to many of our regular customers. We know that dealers already recognise our first class customer support. Our new office will include a dedicated repair facility, and this will enhance our service offer."

Trig's decision reflects a trend in the Utrecht region: during the 2012–2015 period, some 10 foreign companies established operations in the region every year, with annual numbers increasing to 15 to 20 in recent years.

Utrecht Region's Trade & Invest assisted in finding a suitable business location. Trade & Invest is a collaboration between the municipality of Amersfoort, the municipality of Utrecht and the province of Utrecht. All three have the same goal in mind: improving the international appeal and image of, and increasing the benefit yielded by the excellent conditions available in, the Utrecht region. An important part of this process is attracting foreign businesses.

Fatma Koşer Kaya, alderwoman for Economics in Amersfoort: "I feel that the choice of Trig Avionics for Amersfoort is a wonderful result of the cooperation in our region. In future, this cooperation could very well be extended to other municipalities. If we work together, we will be able to maintain our position as one of the leading European regions. This standing is extremely important for the job market."
