Väike-Laatsi Industrial Park
#Investor - this is the best offer for you to start your industry in Valga or to find a suitable property!
Väike-Laatsi is a 65 hectare industrial park in the town of Valga. The park is big enough to provide a suitable production area for ambitious businesses.
The plots in the industrial park are registered as state- and privately owned property and the park’s detailed plan was completed in 2007. Main access roads to the area were reconstructed and illuminated in 2020. Now there are also communications like water, sewage, electricity, internet and heat.
The water and sewage lines have been updated, connection points are available for operating companies. There is a substation very close to the park and connection points are located near the businesses. Also, there is guaranteed electricity for all newcomers. Heating is local and there is no central heating line in the park.
Broadband internet cable is located directly on the border of the property, i.e. by Saviaugu street. The strength of the location of Väike-Laats is the presence of a railway (Valga-Võru direction). Currently, there is no branch road, but it is possible to build it on the land. The infrastructure within the industrial park is being developed.
Businesses operating in the industrial park have different fields of activity: trailer production, road construction, metal industry, wood industry (mainly new and tidy industrial buildings).
Valga municipality is an area with strong industrial potential and its advantage is being situated on Estonia’s Southern border, together with the railway and road network.
