Merkator was set up in our region in 2018 with the support of the Economic Development Agency of the Principality of Asturias (IDEPA), an entity under the Regional Ministry of Employment, Industry and Tourism, through the Invest in Asturias programme.
The Belgian company continues its commitment to attracting talent to our region. It currently employs ten people and has plans for growth in the coming months.
During the inauguration of Merkator’s new offices, the Regional Minister of Science, Innovation and University of the Government of Asturias, Borja Sánchez, highlighted the strength of the data engineering sector and its high employability in Asturias.
Invest in Asturias and Merkator
At the time, Merkator selected Asturias as an investment location due to factors such as the high quality of the existing human resources and the potential business collaborations derived from the presence of leading local partners in the field of geospatial information.
The implementation of Merkator in our region was part of the actions developed by IDEPA focused on attracting new business projects that diversify the Asturian productive fabric.
