Chemical and process industry

As one of Europe’s leading suppliers of chemical products and services, the Netherlands boasts more than 400 top chemical companies across the entire supply chain.

One of the largest chemical clusters

Moreover, one of the largest chemical clusters in northwestern Europe is located in Zeeland, where the entire industry sector employs nearly 25,000 people, many of them for the chemical industry and others for maintenance companies or for maintenance services. The port and industrial areas in Vlissingen and the Zeeuws-Vlaanderen Canal zone between Ghent and Terneuzen are the engine behind the Zeeland economy.

Major chemical players chose Zeeland

These assets make the Netherlands a smart choice for chemical companies looking to expand or accelerate their business operations.
