Why invest in Stoke Staffs?

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire is a major UK growth area. We played a unique role as one of the creative workshops of the Industrial Revolution. That same entrepreneurial spirit that once created world-beaters like Spode, Wedgwood and Bass is alive and well here today. Some of Britain’s greatest success stories, like JCB and bet365, have all grown from garage start-ups into billion-pound success stories.

Today, we are a fast-growing centre of modern manufacturing, making a major contribution to manufacturing employment growth nationally. Businesses here produce the advanced technical components and materials for a range of consumer and business products.

The same location benefits that attracted Michelin in 1926 are once again bringing international businesses to Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. Jaguar Land Rover, Amazon and Molson-Coors are just some of the names investing millions of pounds and creating thousands of jobs here.
