The Breda centre is in a modern office building on Ceresstraat, a well-known business address in the heart of the city, close to banks, business consultancy firms and producers of consumer goods. Breda's economy is rooted in an industrial heritage with an established food and drinks industry as well as being home to pharmaceutical, marketing and other financial companies. Today it is growing as a hub both as a regional service centre and for networking and meeting on an international level with a strong reputation for logistics and trade. This is not surprising given its unique location between the main ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp and excellent road and rail infrastructure – the perfect combination for the fast and efficient transport of both people and goods. Increasing numbers of leading overseas companies from Europe to America and the Asia are choosing Breda as the location for their Benelux or European head offices.
