The city of Oss is known as an industrial town ever since the industrial revolution. Due to family companies such as Jurgens and Van Den Bergh that settled here, Oss grew into the regional centre of industry. Multinationals such as Organon and Unilever have their roots in Oss.
The cities of Nijmegen and 's-Hertogenbosch are nearby, lying 35 km. eastbound and 25 km. westbound respectively.
The accessibility by means of the highways A50 and A59, as well as the train connection (both intercity and local train) ensures that Oss keeps on growing and has many commuters.
The town centre has recently been modernized and accommodates a cozy corner where a lot of bars and restaurants are located.
