Significant funding has already been delivered to ensure the area has the infrastructure to support major investments.

We have excellent transport links and digital connectivity which help us to attract big businesses to Tees Valley, as well as a highly skilled workforce with transferable skills on hand, ready-made for the job. Add to this the major regeneration and development projects under way across an extensive range of sites and premises, including Teesworks, the biggest development opportunity in the UK right now, and you get the perfect location for your next major investment.

A leading location

Tees Valley is a leading destination for manufacturing, process and energy companies, with strengths in the digital, life sciences and professional services sectors and we have many advantages over other areas that attract big businesses. The region is fast positioning itself as a leader in low carbon and offshore technologies, with major infrastructure projects taking place on Teesworks – the UK’s largest and most connected industrial zone and the heart of the Teesside Freeport.

Located on the north-east coast of England the area, covering five boroughs, is ideally situated to service the whole of the UK and has a population of 670,000.

A Mayoral Combined Authority

Being one of only nine areas in the UK to have a metro Mayor and a devolution deal, Tees Valley businesses can be confident that decision-making here is done with our local businesses in mind. Devolved decision-making helps us fulfil our potential and develop and nurture businesses in a way that will support them and the wider area.

Whether it’s maximising our transport infrastructure, connecting our businesses and getting people moving or having the ability to deliver skills training that employers really need, devolution works for Tees Valley.

Our lower operating costs, uninterrupted water supply, established supply chains and clusters of successful companies across processing, manufacturing, energy and digital sectors make Tees Valley a profitable place to invest. With outstanding public-private sector cooperation, a dedicated business investment team to advise and support plus financial incentives available on sites, skills and training, investing in Tees Valley has never been easier
