GIPCO - Your location for Erkelenz & Europe!

The European single market has made the town of Erkelenz a central location within the European economic community due to its proximity to the borders with Belgium and the Netherlands. As is already evident on the outside, GIPCO takes European interaction into account. There are streets here with names such as Brüsseler Allee and Straßburger Allee, as well as Luxemburger Straße, Maastrichter Straße, and Sittarder Straße. The last also refers to the partnership, established several years ago, between the towns of Sittard and Erkelenz.
