£90m Redditch Eastern Gateway is just one of Worcestershire’s World Class investment opportunities to be featured as part of the Midlands Engine delegation to MIPIM 2017.
The new Redditch Eastern Gateway development will be available for investment at the hub of Worcestershire’s rapidly expanding advanced manufacturing sector.
Offering exceptional transport connectivity for businesses, Redditch Eastern Gateway’s ‘game changer’ employment site takes full advantage of the M40/M42 motorways, whilst remaining minutes from Redditch Town Centre and just a 20 minute drive to Birmingham International Airport and railway station.
The site has benefitted from a multimillion pound commitment to strengthening its nearby infrastructure and also offers investors the opportunity to build on the existing engineering and manufacturing expertise available within Redditch.
Worcestershire’s highly skilled local workforce specialises in Advanced Manufacturing and recent research highlights Worcestershire as having the strongest growth in higher level workforce skills between 2010-2014 of all LEP areas in the UK. Redditch Eastern Gateway is one of four game changer sites identified in the county’s Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) – key employment sites seen as important in driving the county’s economic future prosperity.
The employment site is also located at the heart of one of the UK’s most productive workforces, which has been confirmed as having the highest growth in productivity of all LEP areas between 2010-2015, in the Office of National Statistics’ latest figures.
Redditch Eastern Gateway is an exceptional investment opportunity for businesses who are looking to capitalise on world class connectivity, an excellent local skills base and productive workforce. This exciting investment opportunity is perfectly suited for rapidly expanding companies that require the space and facilities needed for unlocking long-term growth.
