The hightech manufacturing industry in the North of the Netherlands gets its largest impulse from the ‘Innovatiecluster Drachten’ (ICD). This is the conclusion of the ING bank in their yearly report about the manufacturing industry in the Netherlands. In the first week of Oktober ING presented the report at the ‘IndustrieTop Noord’ in Dokkum.

Variass has been an active member of the Innovatiecluster for several years. The ICD is according to the Economic and Financial Analysis Division of ING a great example of how a region with a mediocre position to begin with, builds on it’s own succes.
