Brief characteristics:

The Staré Sedlo industrial zone is situated in the NUTS II territory of Northwest Bohemia and belongs to the administrative Karlovy Vary Region. The nearest cities are Sokolov (24,177 inhabitants) and Staré Sedlo (820 inhabitants). The industrial zone stretching over an area of 124 ha is provided with spatial planning documentation and is ready for industrial production and warehousing. This locality is well connected to major roads, which underlines its strategic character in the Karlovy Vary Region. The area is not burdened with any liability. Its majority owner is the mining company Sokolovská uhelná, právní nástupce, a.s. Both the Karlovy Vary Region and the City of Sokolov intend to use this property in order to exploit all other industrial areas located within the Sokolov agglomeration, or to offer it to a strategic investor who will ensure jobs and support the local labor market under the conditions of industrial restructuring.

The City of Sokolov 

The City of Sokolov is found in the center of the Sokolov Basin at the foothills of the Krušné Mountains. The area bears nationally significant deposits of brown coal and thus facilitates the generation of power. This makes the Sokolov Region a significant power hub of the national and international transmission systems. The city lies on the international express road R/6 stretching between Nuremburg, Cheb, Sokolov, Karlovy Vary and Prague and on the intersection of 2nd class roads connecting the towns of Kraslice, Sokolov and Bečov nad Teplou. The regional railroad track between Cheb, Karlovy Vary and Ústí nad Labem also has its importance. The city has a number of secondary schools specializing in engineering and the building industry. Not far from Sokolov are the towns of Královské Poříčí, Habartov, Bukovany, Dolní Rychnov, Staré Sedlo, Svatava, Březová u Sokolova and Loket. These communities provide sufficient human resources and land for residential properties across their entire area. The international airport in Karlovy Vary is only 30 km away.

Labor market

This agglomeration offers most jobs in the power industry that is further divided into the mining of primary sources, which is being gradually phased out (2030), and the processing of resources; i.e. the production and distribution of electricity. The process of local industrial restructuring provides enough qualified workers, especially in the fields of engineering and associated services.
