New 15.7 billion euro investment by Amazon Web Services to expand its data centres in Aragon

The Amazon Web Services project will support the creation of 6,800 full-time jobs annually in Aragon between 2024 and 2033. 

The President of the Government of Aragon, Jorge Azcón, announced this Wednesday the investment of 15.7 billion euros that Amazon Web Services (AWS) is going to make through its Cloud Region, located in Aragon, between 2024 and 2033, to expand its availability areas in the region, the largest economic investment by a company in the history of the autonomous region and the largest technological investment in Spain and southern Europe to date.  

In the words of the head of the regional government, ‘this new investment by AWS positions Aragon not only as a technological power in Spain, but also as a technological hub of the first order on a continental and global level’. 

Over the next decade, this project will support the creation of 17,500 full-time jobs per year in Spain, of which 6,800 will remain in Aragon. Of course, these new jobs will have an impact on the technology sector, but also on other economic areas of the autonomous community, which will benefit from the tractor effect of this initiative.  

The impact of this investment on Aragon’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will be colossal, around 12,900 million euros (of the 21,600 million euros expected to have an impact on Spain’s GDP), according to initial estimates. This figure is equivalent to more than 30% of Aragon’s current GDP which, at the end of 2022, the latest figure available, totalled 41,763 million euros. 

Also speaking at the announcement event was Suzana Curic, Managing Director of AWS in Spain and Portugal, who said: ‘Aragon was always our winning horse when we were considering where to locate our Region and our data centres. The availability of land, access to sustainable energy sources, a solid and consolidated business network, local talent and the huge growth potential were the main reasons why we had to be here. A year and a half after the opening of our centres, and with this new investment we are announcing today, we at AWS reinforce our commitment to Aragon and its people, as well as to Spain’. 

After announcing the investment, Azcón thanked Amazon Web Services for its decision to ‘choose our region to develop this historic project’. ‘Thank you for driving the transformation of our economy towards a more technological and sustainable model with such a promising future,’ he added. 

The president also congratulated the company ‘for having chosen the best possible place’. ‘Aragon has the talent, the natural resources, an international vocation and the privileged position to lead the changes that are going to shape our society’, he added. 

‘The Government of Aragon applauds your commitment and we will redouble our efforts to lead the European technology sector. We are going to do this through education, by multiplying the number of university places and vocational training degrees that are most in demand by companies. And, of course, as we announced last week, we are going to promote business activity related to technology through a large technology park of more than 40 hectares in Zaragoza that will come into being soon”, he added. 

AWS also highlighted its commitment to the training of talent and the creation of technological jobs, recalling some of the different initiatives underway in Aragon, such as its Think Big Space programme to train students from local schools, or the different educational programmes available at a national level to help all kinds of audiences, from unemployed people looking to retrain, to more technical profiles who want to specialise, including programmes focused on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) initiatives to inspire young people to pursue technical studies in the future. 

The immense technological potential of Aragon 

President Azcón wanted to highlight that this new investment by Amazon Web Services responds to ‘the incredible potential of our land’. ‘Our geographical position allows us to be one of the main logistic hubs at national and European level and we have exceptional natural resources, which allow us to lead the generation of renewable energies’, he said. 

Furthermore, Aragon ‘enjoys a consolidated social peace, the same peace that has helped us decade after decade to grow within the competitive industrial market, because in Aragon we are all on the same side, on the side of dialogue and progress, of growth’.

Microsoft plans to build a data centre campus in Aragon to provide cloud services to European companies and public bodies. The new infrastructure will add to the investment the company has made for the implementation of Microsoft’s data centre region in Madrid, which will be available in the coming months, and will offer all of Microsoft’s intelligent cloud services (Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform) to private and public customers in Europe, meeting regulatory, compliance and data sovereignty requirements. 

The campus that Microsoft plans to build will be a catalyst for innovation, economic growth and job creation in Aragon and the rest of Spain, helping to accelerate the digitisation of public and private organisations of all sizes and industries and driving the growth of the technology industry in Spain. According to an IDC analysis, the new data centre campus could add €8.4 billion to Spanish GDP and contribute to the creation of 69,000 indirect jobs in the period 2026 – 2030. 

Aragón, home to the new Project 

Aragon has positioned itself as one of the most important regions in Europe for the implementation of data centres, thanks to the availability of highly qualified talent, public support for innovation projects, the existence of high quality infrastructure, available land, and its geographical location. Microsoft’s project will foster innovation and the growth of the local technology industry in Aragon, where Microsoft has more than 300 companies in its ecosystem of technology partners. According to IDC, Microsoft’s data centre campus project could add 264 million euros to regional GDP and contribute to the creation of more than 2,100 technology jobs in Aragon between 2026 and 2030. 

“It fills me with great satisfaction that Aragón is consolidating its position as one of the leading European regions in a cutting-edge and strategic technological sector for the development of digitalisation and business innovation. The Microsoft project is a new incentive to Aragon’s vocation for attracting companies, especially those that, due to their international relevance and innovative nature, represent an extraordinary added value to the economy and the generation of wealth in our Autonomous Community.”

The Government of Aragon is going to make every effort to implement this type of investment projects in the Autonomous Community, which will make a difference in generating a cutting-edge, highly technological economy and creating skilled jobs.” 

Jorge Azcón, President of the Government of Aragon

“Microsoft’s new investments in Spain will enable us to provide intelligent cloud solutions and services to businesses and public entities in Europe, fostering the digital transformation of businesses and public entities, driving innovation and contributing to the generation of new jobs in the technology sector in Aragon and the rest of Spain. We will work closely with national and regional governments and local authorities in building the data centre campus to ensure that people, businesses and society can take full advantage of the benefits of a digital world.”

Alberto Granados, president of Microsoft Spain

The world’s leading company in hormonal therapies, Besins Healthcare, installs its newest factory in Aragon

Aragon attracts another pharmaceutical company to install its first factory in Spain

The 25-million-euro investment will create 150 highly qualified jobs

Besins Healthcare, world leadeing company in novel therapies for gynecology, fertility, obstetrics, endocrinology and andrology, has chosen the town of Muel (Zaragoza) to install its first factory in Spain. The pharmaceutical multinational acquired a 9,800-square-meter warehouse in the industrial area El Pitarco to carry out this investment, which will reach 25 million euros and create 150 stable highly qualified jobs.

The plant is expected to start manufacturing in the second half of 2022. Construction works are already underway, soon part of the equipment will be installed so that it can be tested starting this summer. According to company sources, there could be additional future investments, “given that we are talking about a stable process of decades.” Besins has assured that, as a company in a constant research process, they contemplate the production of new creation products at the Muel plant destined for the whole world.

This new business project will be declared of Regional Interest by the Government of Aragon, which will make it possible to shorten administrative process times. In addition to this declaration, the Department of Economy, Planning and Employment is already processing, together with the company, its application file for Regional Economic Incentives. The President of Aragon, Javier Lambán, declared that this investment is particularly welcome as it is implanted in a rural area, contributing to its revitalization.

Why did Besins choose Aragon?

Besins Healthcare has chosen Aragon to install its first plant in Spain due to factors such as its geographical location and communication routes. In addition, the proximity of Muel to the University of Zaragoza facilitates the hiring or attraction of qualified personnel. Another decisive cause that has led the managers of the company to settle in Muel is the immediate availability of a spacious and empty warehouse that allows, in a short time, the integration of all the necessary facilities for the production of medicines. 

Besides, according to the president of the French company, Antoine Besins, choosing Aragon has responded to objective industrial parameters. Although, among all the candidate countries -mandatorily belonging to the European Union for the application of mandatory pharmaceutical standards-, the “excellent” reception of the authorities and the facilities for the establishment of companies in the sector has entailed a keypoint to make this decision.

The Department of Economy, Planning and Employment, through Aragón Exterior (AREX), began working in 2019 on attracting the investment project of this company. Up to 14 Autonomous Communities presented location proposals in their territory. Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium or Ireland have competed with Spain, and within Spain, Aragón was the most competitive region for its dynamism and adaptation to the needs of the company. 

A leading company

Besins Healthcare is a family business specialized in the development and commercialization of hormonal therapies for the treatment of gynecology and obstetrics, fertility, endocrinology and andrology. It currently produces and markets more than thirty different products that are prescribed in one hundred countries around the world.

One of the mainstays of the company is constant research. Thanks to it, it has been possible to discover innovative technologies that have an impact on improving the health of women and men throughout their lives. Besins Healthcare products include natural progesterone for pregnant women, transdermal gel for testosterone deficiency syndrome, or estradiol replacement therapies during menopause.

Magna Automotive expands its production in Aragon boosting their line of electric vehicles

Aragon consolidates its commitment to R&D subsidizing 28 new business projects that promoted an investment of 60 million euros

Magna Automotive will invest 15 million euros in its Pedrola plant over the next two years, which will be allocated mainly to new production lines for components for electric vehicles and the improvement of current processes, supported by aid for R&D in mobility of the Department of Economy, Planning and Employment of the Government of Aragon. With these projects under development and other products in the launch phase, the company expects to generate 50 new jobs.

Magna Automotive has been awarded a total of nearly 1.2 million euros through the two calls for R&D grants aimed at the automotive sector launched to date by the Department of Economy. The last of them, published last year, has made it possible to support one of Magna’s experimental development projects and ten other business proposals linked to sustainable mobility, in addition to four business initiatives in the pharmaceutical sector and 13 in the circular economy. These 28 subsidized business R&D projects in 2021 have made it possible to promote an investment of 60 million euros in Aragon.

In 2019, the Department of Economy had convened for the first time this type of R&D aid aimed exclusively at the development of the electric vehicle, subsidizing another nine different projects that have generated an investment of 53.9 million euros in Aragon. In that first call, Magna received a grant to create a hot stamping battery tray for electric vehicles.

The company has thanked the Government of Aragon for its support in their current and future plans which reinforces the commitment to the territory, people and industry as an economic engine for development.

Producing in Aragon since 2016

The Magna group is one of the main suppliers in the automotive sector, being a leading company in the use of technology and offering advanced solutions to facilitate mobility. Globally, the company has more than 161,000 employees and an organizational structure designed to innovate and adapt with agility. Magna’s 60 years of experience are supported by a unique systems approach for design, engineering and manufacturing that encompasses most vehicle components. Their global network includes 340 manufacturing operations and 89 sales, engineering and product development centers in 28 countries. The company is committed to a business model based on long-term sustainability and integrates Corporate Social responsibility policies into its processes.

After managing its implementation in our Autonomous Community with the support of Aragón Exterior / Invest in Aragon, this Magna division has been operating in Pedrola since 2016. At this time, the plant is focused on the manufacture of components for vehicle bodywork with a high level of automation and has a workforce of more than 300 people. The company expects to reach a turnover of close to 75 million euros in 2022 due to the specialization in hot stamping processes, laser cutting and assembly of parts through resistance welding and MIG/MAG. Components are served to the main automobile manufacturers, not only in Spain but also in several European countries.

As a complement to its productive work and to give greater impetus to its innovation and development activities, the company has been working for several years with the University of Zaragoza and has its own Collaboration Chair. The commitment to local talent and internal development has allowed the company to consolidate a high-level production and technical team through specific qualification programs.

Aragon triples funds raised in the H2020 program and is now among the leading Autonomous Communities in European resources for R + D + i

Regional companies and public entities achieve a return of 176.3 million euros from their participation in 500 EU-funded projects

SMEs, public technology and research centers, and the university achieve the highest funding in strategic areas such as clean energy, industry and agri-food

Aragon has achieved a return of 176.3 million euros in the European Horizon 2020 program to promote research and innovation, tripling its result from the previous funding plan of the European Commission and placing the Autonomous Community as the sixth in Spain in terms of fundraising.

This number is the result of the efforts of 145 Aragonese entities and agents, who have participated with excellent results in H2020. 

The biggest share of this amount was achieved by Aragonese companies, and especially small and medium-sized ones (SMEs), who have participated in 500 financed projects, accounting for almost 50 million euros (27.9% of total return).

The performance of the Aragonese technology centers such as the Technological Institute of Aragon ITAINNOVA and Aitiip Technological Center has also been remarkable, with 26.7% of the total funds obtained and a global amount of 47.16 million euros. University of Zaragoza, with 34 million euros, represents 19.2%; public research centers, 13.7% with just over 24 million euros; while the public administration represents 4.8%, exceeding 8.5 million euros.

Among the main participating agents, there are also the Institute of Materials Sciences of Aragon and the Institute of Carbochemistry, both dependent on the Higher Council for Scientific Research, as well as the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies, the Zaragoza Logistic Center Foundation, the Aragonese Health Service, the Iberus Campus of International Excellence or the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza.

From the sectors’ perspective, those who have obtained the highest returns are clean, safe and efficient energy (29.9 million); nanotechnologies, materials and biotechnology (26.5 million); and bioeconomy and food security (13.7 million). In fact, they account for 40% of the funds capitalized by Aragon and confirm the Community’s strategic specialization in the fields of energy (hydrogen and fuel cells), industry and agri-food.

In addition, this program has been supported by all actors of the Aragonese science and technology system, which speaks of good health and coordination of the regional ecosystem. The excellent results obtained by the Aragonese entities participating in the program, as well as by the rest of the Autonomous Communities, have led Spain to rank fourth in volume of subsidies received, only behind Germany, the United Kingdom and France.

The new Horizon Europe framework program, endowed with 95,517 million euros for the next seven years, aims to achieve the greatest scientific, technological, economic and social impact of EU investments in R & D & I, promoting the competitiveness of the regions and Member States. It is estimated that it could generate 11 euros for every euro invested and create up to 320,000 new highly-skilled jobs by 2040.

Pharmaceutical investments in Aragon are on the rise

More than 50 companies of the biomedical sector have established facilities in Aragon

CerTest Biotec, a local manufacturer of antigen tests, will invest € 100 million euros in the next three years, creating 205 new jobs

Nowadays, around 50 pharmaceutical companies have established their installations in Aragon, manufacturing a variety of  pharmaceutical products, radiation, electromedical and electrotherapeutic equipment, and medical and dental instruments and supplies.

BD‘s recent investment in Zaragoza has helped boosting the industrial sector in Aragon, and the pharmaceutical industry in particular. This project is part of its business unit specialized in the manufacture and marketing of preloaded drug administration systems, mainly glass syringes, that are supplied to pharmaceutical companies to be filled with the drugs they produce.

Other notable companies, in addition to Becton Dickinson, have also set their eyes on Aragon:

  • Novaltia, the sixth pharmaceutical distribution company by national market share, has invested in two logistics centers in Zaragoza and Calatayud in 2020.
  • One of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, Teva will invest 40 million until 2025 in its Zaragoza plant and will create new 60 jobs, to increase its production by 20%
  • Alliance Healthcare has hired about 200 people – half of them in the company’s international digital innovation center WBA Digital – in Villanueva de Gállego.

Another  project that is already being developed is part of the industrial park Polígono Río Gállego II, in San Mateo de Gállego, where local antigen test producer CerTest Biotec  is installed and whose presence and expansion is serving as a tractor for the installation of other projects in the biomedical sector.

CerTest will invest € 100 million in the next three years creating 205 new jobs. After the seventh phase of its initial development project to double the area and number of employees, construction of a  vaccine factory has also started, with an investment of 10 million euros, out of the 100 announced last year in the presence of the Spanish Minister of Science. The company is  already working on the earthworks, the total estimated  execution period will be of 15 months.


The pharmaceutical industry reveals  to be one of the strategic sectors that contribute to the economic reactivation of Spain and attracts new international investments to our country, being a driving force for science and the economy, contributing to its revitalization. Each euro invested in this sector generates between one and two in other sectors, and each direct job generates up to four additional ones.

Aragón, in the top tier of European pharmaceutical hubs with BD investment

BD will build a 200M€, latest generation plant for glass syringes, creating 600 jobs in Zaragoza

Aragon grows as the new pharmaceutical benchmark in Europe

In two years and a half, Becton Dickinson (BD), one of the largest medical technology companies in the world, will begin to manufacture in Zaragoza the first components of its latest generation glass syringes that will reach an annual production of 400 million units in 2030.

With a consummated investment in Aragon of 450 million euros, the American multinational founded in 1897 presents itself as a reliable company that will continue to invest another 206 million euros between 2021 and 2030. This investment will lead to the creation of 150 qualified jobs -in areas such as electromechanics, metrology, robotics or process quality control- until the end of 2023, a figure that is expected to increase to 600 workers upon completion of the start-up of all production lines.

The project for the new plant located in Zaragoza is linked to the operations of the company’s facilities in Fraga, which will contribute to its consolidation and potential growth. Both plants will be connected through their production processes and the possibility of sharing knowledge, which will make both factories located in Aragon a benchmark within the Becton Dickinson organization and the Aragonese industrial fabric itself. Aragon is becoming a firm competitor of Liège (Belgium) and Basel (Switzerland), thanks to its strategic entry position to Europe and its logistical capacity.

The Fragatina plant has an area of 65,000 m2 and is one of the largest factories in the region, fully automated and 100% powered by renewable energy . Its staff reaches, after the last hiring, almost 700 employees. With a production of 6 billion units per year, it is the only plant in the company that integrates the entire supply chain, including direct delivery to the customer, with an automated warehouse whose capacity of 24,000 pallets will increase to 38,000 after the expansion works.

On July 14, 2021, the Governing Council of Aragon approved the declaration as an investment of regional interest for the new manufacturing plant, in other words, streamlining the administrative processing of this project. The project includes the phased construction of a sustainable plant for the manufacture of plastic components of multiple types and production lines for Hypack glass syringes, with their corresponding equipment and services. Long-term planning is to optimize space utilization to allow the installation of at least 10-12 lines of these syringes, equivalent to 1.5 billion units of syringes per year.

The company will continue working with the Government of Aragon to develop the legal-technical framework so that the  industrial park can accommodate other companies interested in settling there.

Pontegadea joins forces with Repsol and invests 245 million in a wind farm in Aragon

The project comprises 89 wind turbines, with a capacity of 335 megawatts, all located in the Zaragoza province

The Delta wind project keeps up the investment euphoria in renewable energies in Aragon

The business of renewable energies in Aragon maintains its steady growth with Pontegadea Inversiones acquiring 49% of Repsol’s Delta Wind Park, which operates 89 wind turbines in the region.

Repsol has reached an agreement with one of the main private investment groups in the world – the fund that manages the personal fortune of Zara owner Amancio Ortega – to partner in the Delta wind project, made up of eight wind farms located in the province of Zaragoza. Its 89 wind turbines, all of them fully operational since last March, add up to 335 megawatts (MW) of installed power, .

Under the agreement, Pontegadea invests 245 million euros to take a 49% stake in Delta, which means valuing these assets at 500 million, that is, 5.6 million for each windmill. This operation is Pontgadea’s first foray in the renewable energy sector, following in the footsteps of other great fortunes and multinationals that have been seduced by the green energies of Aragon, such as Amazon.

The parks are located in the surroundings of the Zaragoza towns of Villar de los Navarros (in the county of Campo de Daroca), where 236 MW are located; and Fuentes de Ebro (Ribera Baja de Ebro), with almost 100 MW. 

These facilities began operating in tests a year ago. Construction involved the investment of 300 million euros, and works were completed in less than 12 months with tips of up to 600 workers involved. Delta will produce 992 gigawatt hours (GWh) of energy per year, equivalent to the average annual consumption of 300,000 homes, preventing the emission of one million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere per year.

Thanks to its favorable wind conditions and orographic features, Aragon has become one of the epicenters in the deployment of wind farms in Spain.


Doing Business in Aragon Logistics

DHL Express invests 4.7 million euros in its Zaragoza facilities

The project includes the implementation of a new international transport center in Aragon

E-commerce in Aragon has grown by 60% in two years, and traditional businesses are recovering pre-pandemic activity levels

DHL Express will expand its presence in Zaragoza Logistics Platform (PLAZA) with a new 1,995-square-meter center for operations related to international transport. These new fully mechanized facilities, built on an area of 8,900 square meters and incorporating the latest technology, have already been in operation for a few weeks. The total investment for the expansion is 4,739,000 euros.

The objective of this investment is to respond to the registered growth of more than 50% both in the volume of import and export shipments in the Zaragoza facilities. “Industrial development is being strong and the companies we are providing services to are growing,” says Miguel Borrás, Managing Director of DHL Express Spain and Portugal.

Growth in B2B and B2C trade led the company to delopy five additional delivery routes between 2006 and 2021. Retail, fashion and engineering are the main sectors that concentrate shipments and deliveries in Zaragoza, followed by professional services, consumer goods and the automotive industry. Regarding the origin of shipments to the Zaragoza facilities, the “top” countries are China, Italy and Germany, while Mexico, France, the United Kingdom and Italy are the main destinations for the merchandise.

Due to this expansion, DHL’s workforce in Zaragoza has increased by 15%, mainly to carry out work related to routes and customs, among others. In fact, chances are DHL will be able to incorporate more professionals according to the growth and development macroeconomic trends for this year.

In Zaragoza, DHL Express has also committed to sustainability acquiring 12 small electric aircraft  and it is expected that, by 2025, the company will have replaced all its fleet to be electric, with the exception of long-haul vehicles.

Future growth and expansion

By maintaining the existing facilities focused on domestic transport operations, DHL Express expects to continue growing because e-commerce in the area of Zaragoza and Aragon has grown by 60% in two years, even during the pandemic, and traditional businesses are recovering, reaching pre-pandemic activity levels.

DHL’s growth forecasts within Aragon are currently focused on Zaragoza and Teruel, although the company does not rule out opening another facility in the third Aragonese province, Huesca, in the longer term. The company has a market share of around 53%, although “in Zaragoza, it may be higher and above the Spanish average.”


Inditex invests 80 million in the expansion of its facilities in Plaza

The apparel giant will expand its main logistics center, located in Aragon, starting in 2022

Zaragoza Logistics Platform, Plaza, proves to be an attractive location for investment

Inditex will expand, from 2022, its facilities in the Zaragoza Logistics Platform, Plaza, with an investment of 80 million euros and will create 250 new direct jobs. These facilities are expected to be functioning by 2023. The project includes the acquisition of new plots with a total surface of more than 63,500 square meters located in Plaza, close to the existing 180,000-square-meter facilities, which will allow them to connect all the centers it has in the logistics area.

“The purpose is to be able to provide the ‘Zara’ fashion chain with the logistics necessary for the export of its products, thus consolidating Plataforma Europa in Zaragoza as one of the logistics points of reference in the Inditex Group at an international level”, they have pointed out.

Established in 2003, Plataforma Europa has been one of the main logistics centers of Inditex and, therefore, an object of constant investment, with important expansions in 2010 and 2021. In addition, the Inditex group has highlighted that the presence of these facilities in PLAZA “has not only been a showcase for the city as a logistics hub, but has also represented a notable attraction of investment by third parties willing to develop auxiliar services for this center and for other companies in the Community, which thus benefit from the driving effect of this activity”. In 2020, it has reported a turnover of 120 million euros, a workforce of almost 1,800 people and positive results of 4.2 million euros.

On average, 1,750 indefinite jobs were created, and around 2,000 people were hired at peak times, with quality pay and social conditions. Due to this expansion, more job placements, ranging from specialist operators to production supervisors, logistics technicians, customs, administration or systems, among others, have been offered. Likewise, it is estimated that the indirect job creation factor will remain above two jobs for each direct job generated, which translates into about 750 new jobs in Aragon, between direct and indirect, associated with the expansion project.

This major investment made in PLAZA has been generating from its inception a remarkable driving effect in the economic and social environment, both in the area of activity of associated infrastructures – Zaragoza airport – as well as auxiliary companies – transport, maintenance, textile re-operations. In fact, the Zaragoza airport has become, since 2019, AENA’s second largest cargo airport, with 182,659 tons of transported materials, 90 percent of which are shipped by Inditex.
