A partir de la fusió de dos projectes i amb la llei d’inversió estrangera, que obria les portes a la inversió de fora, es va decidir tirar endavant l’obertura del laboratori a Andorra. Esperem seguir creixent tant en la part clínica com en la part industrial i veterinària.

Tenir el negoci a Andorra no només té beneficis a nivell fiscal. També és més fàcil la burocràcia i projectar-te a nivell internacional. Precisament Andorra Business m’ha ajudat en aquest procés per fer conèixer els meus productes fora del Principat.

Andorra té diversos avantatges que vam valorar molt en el moment de decidir establir-hi l’empresa, com són la seguretat, la legislació i l’estabilitat política. I després d’establir-nos al país, m’ha sorprès com a la gent li encanta viure a Andorra. Hi ha una gran qualitat de vida.

Vam decidir obrir la clínica a Andorra perquè molts dels pilots de Moto GP i Superbike que assessorem viuen aquí com Fabio Quartararo i Pol Espargaró. També perquè hi ha força esportistes d’elit. Andorra Business ens va ajudar a l’hora d’implantar el negoci facilitant-nos la informació de com muntar l’empresa al Principat.

Vam venir a Andorra perquè ens encantava la muntanya, perquè teníem Espanya i França a prop, i sobretot pel marc de seguretat excepcional que ofereix el Principat. Estem molt contents de seguir comptant amb el suport d’Andorra Business, ja que gràcies a ells hem pogut establir molts vincles comercials amb empreses internacionals.
