Relocate to Shropshire

Why you should relocate to Shropshire

The host of top companies who have come here will tell you their decision was based on the county’s strategic location, its highly skilled workforce, secure and sustainable infrastructure, affordable and flexible site options, supportive administration and vibrant, diverse economy. See what the businesses based here have to say by visiting our Case Studies page.

In fact, we tick all the boxes when you are are looking for a successful expansion or relocation.

Ready access to regional airports, docks and the rest of the UK make this a truly connected county. From Shrewsbury, the centre of Birmingham is under an hour away by train or car; the fastest trains take you to Manchester in just over an hour.

As well as being a brilliant base from which to serve regional, national and international clients, a raft of sector strengths – such as advanced manufacturing, low carbon, agri-tech and business and professional services to name just a few – provide the perfect growth platform.

But away from work our local business leaders will also agree that living, as well as working, in arguably one of the UK’s prettiest counties also has its attractions. It not only makes doing business here a pleasure… it also acts as a magnet for talented people: the core strength of every modern enterprise.

Those same talented people will appreciate knowing that our schools are first rate, our housing sensibly priced and the local cost of living helps salaries go a long, long way – while fabulous countryside is literally on everyone’s doorstep. No wonder it was recently voted one of the “happiest places to live” in the UK.

With so many factors making Shropshire such an attractive investment location, isn’t it time you took a closer look?
