The group Pierre et Vacances (8,600 employees in the world) has announced the opening of a leisure park run by holiday village operator Center Parcs (subsidiary company of Pierre et Vacances). This will be the fourth leisure park of the company in France after the ones in Normandie, Sologne and Aisne. The planned business expansion of the Pierre et Vacances group envisages the creation of 670 new jobs in the Moselle in 2010. The Pierre et Vacances group hopes that this new center in the east of France will attract customers from France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium.
