At the heart of the UK logistics network, with a successful track record in R&D and an established supply chain incorporating 18 of the world's top 20 suppliers in or around the area, the region is well placed to take businesses investing here from strength to strength.

Over 500 automotive manufacturers are already based in England's East Midlands, making the region's automotive supply chain one of the strongest in Europe. The world's leading car manufacturer, Toyota, produces almost 300,000 vehicles here annually, and the region is also home to smaller niche manufacturers such as Bowler Off Road, Noble, Triumph and Norton Motorcycles.
