01 REASONS TO INVEST

When looking for a new location for investment, companies often consider functional issues: look for more modern premises, the possibility to optimize costs or larger area providing enough space for the growing volumes of production. For a business developer seeking efficiency, these are all everyday issues which we can help solve.

Kaunas FEZ covers a 534 ha territory in which we can offer efficient solutions to business developers depending on the customer’s needs:

  • land lease for a period of 99 years;
  • engineering networks constructed to the boundary of the lot;
  • tax incentives;
  • convenient geographic location;
  • a market of educated and qualified professional talents.

We administer a large territory and thus we are able to adapt flexibly to the investors’ needs regarding the area of the lot. The infrastructure constructed to the boundaries of the lots significantly shortens the period of implementation of greenfield projects; therefore, all the customers need to do after concluding the contracts is take care of the design and planning of their business activities.

Kaunas FEZ is located in a convenient site - close to the airport, Baltic Seaport in Klaipeda and an excellent geographical location in Europe altogether.  Kaunas is suitable for investors looking for logistics connections for international exchanges. The logistical attractiveness of the free economic zone allows for the successful use of domestic and international transport infrastructure.
