13th - 24th May 2019

Sandwell is a prime location with a rapidly increasing

business sector. There are some 9,000 companies

which employ around 140,000 people across an impressive

range of industry sectors, with manufacturing, mining, entertainment, construction and motor trades all featuring very strongly.

 

Sandwell is a location where businesses thrive. It has the highest number of new enterprises anywhere in the Black Country resulting in the highest Gross Value Added in the Black Country.

 

There has been substantial investment in the region resulting in significant improvements to facilities for residents including the £450m West Bromwich Regeneration and the £353m Midland Metropolitan Hospital.

 

On-going commitments to education have seen a £6.6million project to improve primary school facilities through to a new University Technical College on the old Sandwell College site, providing both teaching and recreational facilities alongside specialist laboratories for improved scientific and technical education.

 

The opportunities in Sandwell don’t end there. Plans are in place for the second phase of the regeneration to West Bromwich which will include: £1.8m Midland Metro Turn Back facility to improve physical and economic links with Birmingham city centre, 700 residential units at Bescot Friar Park and 450 homes at Grove Lane.

Think Sandwell at Sandwell Council is also on hand to offer extensive business support to existing and new businesses interested in relocation or investing in the area.
