The Chemparc public-private partnership was created in 2003, in order to accompany the industrial regeneration of the Lacq Industrial Park, and contribute to its economic development. All the manufacturers of the Park, the employee unions, the University of Pau and the Adour region, and offices for the public sector services, have premises here.
Nowadays, CHEMPARC forms a team dedicated to detecting new manufacturing projects and accompanying potential investors.
Together we are carried along by a single objective: bringing new manufacturers to the Lacq Industrial zone, project developers with high value-added.
To achieve this objective, a business service centre for new businesses in the chemicals and new materials sector was set up in 2011: CHEMSTART’UP.
CHEMSTART’UP forms the link between the laboratory and the factory. It enables young businesses to test their project in the heart of a reputed manufacturing complex. In this way, the start-ups can benefit from a structure which has pre-equipped premises, with many shared services and access to high tech analytical equipment.
