Tees Valley has an attractive offering for any business looking to invest here. Whether you are starting up a new business, looking to grow your company or relocating an existing business, we have the supporting infrastructure to make things happen for you.

We have a world-class reputation for delivering large-scale projects across our key sectors such as offshore, advanced manufacturing and engineering, chemicals and process, automotive and aerospace, logistics, renewables and digital. Our main advantage over other locations is our low cost of operating. Tees Valley is undoubtedly a cost-competitive location, with rents and rates sitting at around half of most major cities, and a quarter of those in London. This, combined with wage rates that are around 12% lower than the national average and financial incentives available on sites and premises, makes us a great place for new investment or expansion.
