Canton Glarus

The Canton of Glarus is business-friendly.

The Canton of Glarus is business-friendly. Thanks to one of the first Swiss business development laws, this industrial region has become an attractive place for business with many advantages. The most important ones are:

  • Person-to-person: Glarnerland is big enough to offer companies sufficient room and small enough to allow quick decisions unburdened by bureaucracy. 
  • Good advice isn't expensive: The Office of Economic Matters supports entrepreneurs who are founding a business just as much as established companies who want to settle here. 
  • Quality of life over money: In the canton of Glarus, companies can find affordable real estate and well-trained employees. Companies benefit from competitive labour costs and taxes.
  • Everything is close: Glarnerland has very good transportation links. Zurich and its airport are only one hour away by car or train, the most important north-south axis runs through the canton, and private planes and helicopters take off and land in Mollis.
Der Grossraum Zürich ist der Wirtschaftsmotor der Schweiz. Mit der GZA haben wir eine Organisation, die die einmaligen Vorzüge der Region glaubhaft im Ausland vertritt. Das Glarnerland mit seiner reichen industriellen Tradition und seinen Naturschönheiten versteht sich als Teil davon. Wir sind froh, den Auftritt der GZA mitgestalten zu können.
Marianne Lienhard - Regierungsrätin, Vorsteherin Departement Volkswirtschaft und Inneres
