Proven Business Region
We are a region of diverse places, united in a common goal of supporting and facilitating sustainable growth that improves lives and opportunities. Places like Brighton and Hove, Worthing, Crawley, Shoreham, Haywards Heath, Bognor Regis, Burgess Hill and Lewes.
This richness and variety within a 15 mile radius is regarded by residents and national and international visitors alike as a strong attractor for skilled labour and inward investment.
Whether it is your first stepping stone into the UK or an opportunity to scale your activities in a more sensible and cost-effective way. This is a prime business location with all the connectivity and talent you need, without the expense and congestion of a capital city.
There are a number of significant brownfield sites for regeneration and a growing investor appetite across the whole area (rather than just in established pockets of investment). We have the space and infrastructure to support your next project – from new headquarters to manufacturing and logistics; new development sites and creative spaces.
This is a tried and tested, successful and trusted place to build your business. Across our region, entrepreneurs are turning startups into more than a thousand scaleups.
We’ve got local businesses that have been here for more than a century, who are expanding and investing in new facilities here.
And these local champions are being joined by companies from every corner of the world that have chosen to make Greater Brighton their home.
Our international employers include the likes of Roche Diagnostics, Allergy Therapeutics, Thales, L3, American Express, Doosan, Ricardo and Tokyo Electron.
From designing high-performance electric engines to finding a vaccine for coronavirus, our companies are making a difference and creating a better world.
