“prendre racine/ s’installer/ s’ancrer"

“Term uit de bouwector” n’est pas d’une très grande aide, je serais franche sur ce coup-là… Je propose “prendre racine/ s’installer/ s’ancrer”…
N’ayant pas de contexte précis autre que bouwector, je devine un terme financier, peut-être une compagnie s’installant dans une nouvelle région.?.?.
Et, oui, I am guessing...
