Engineering and manufacturing provide a cornerstone for both traditional and future-oriented sectors, ranging from construction and manufacturing to aerospace, defence, life sciences and ICT. We’re home to some great local success stories like LG Motion and Blatchford, through to global giants like ENI.
Our competitive advantage:
- A robust economy. A solid foundation of growth offers a risk-free location for your UK engineering and manufacturing operations .
- Transport links. Great road and rail links make the Basingstoke easily accessible for supply and distribution
- Land bank. Available, affordable land and lots of it.
