Warrington is a base for a wide-ranging number of companies due to its unique investment location. It's consistently ranked among the leading national areas for attracting overseas investment, and with strategically important development sites such as Birchwood Park, Lingley Mere and Omega, it's not difficult to see why.
Logistics and Transport
Surrounded by three motorway networks, Warrington's competitive operating costs make it a superb location. Home to Amazon, Asda, Brakes, The Hut Group, Travis Perkins, Eddie Stobarts and Hermes, we're now an internationally renowned location that helps keep businesses on the move. Further proof that Warrington presents a cost-effective business location is the arrival of the emerging recipe box giant Gousto to Omega.
Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing
With over 7,000 people employed in this sector, Warrington has a diverse base of advanced manufacturing operations. Challenging environments such as aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, nuclear, waste-water and medical manufacturing all have their home in Warrington.
This sector is experiencing extraordinary growth since a cluster of national and international companies have headquartered here, raising Warrington's profile significantly. Now recognised as an internationally important nuclear industry, there's a depth of activity around engineering, design, research, and development, representing an employee base of some 6,000 people.
Warrington has a track record of attracting national and international software companies from cybersecurity, simulation and modelling to enterprise software and back-office software solutions. It also has a plethora of home-grown digital companies that help put Warrington on the digital map.
Birchwood Park Energy Cluster
Birchwood Park is one of the most successful centres for Nuclear Services in the UK with companies such as Rolls Royce, Jacobs, Mirion Technologies, Cavendish Nuclear, Nuvia and National Nuclear Laboratories on site, benefitting from the proximity to the HQ of Sellafield Ltd.
