About Staffordshire

Staffordshire, the home of Britain’s billion pound start-ups. A place where innovation, creativity and enterprise drives business growth and attracts international brands.

That same entrepreneurial spirit that once created world-beaters like Spode, Wedgwood and Bass is alive and well here today. Some of Britain’s greatest success stories, like JCB and bet365, have all grown from garage start-ups into billion pound success stories.

The same location benefits that attracted Michelin in 1926, are once again bringing international businesses to Staffordshire. Jaguar Land Rover, Amazon, Vodafone and Molson-Coors are just some of the names investing millions of pounds and creating thousands of jobs here.

Staffordshire is bursting with opportunity and exuding confidence. Untapped potential includes a large, skilled and available workforce. Bold city and town centre projects are transforming the skyline.

Business is all about connections – and we’re right in the heart of the country.
