Gosselies is a section of the Belgian town of Charleroi within the Walloon region in the Province of Hainaut. Located in the north of Charleroi, it was a municipality of its own before the merger of the municipalities in 1977. Gosselies is the home of the headquarters of Caterpillar Belgium, as well as Solar Turbines Europe. The Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) is located in Gosselies too.
On the pre-metro line M3, opened in June 2013, there are nine stations located in Gosselies. Since this date, Gosselies has been re-connected with the center of Charleroi and the SNCB Charleroi-South railway station by tram.
