365 great things about Staffordshire - Staffordshire is home to one of the undisputed UK premier enterprise parks

i54 South Staffordshire is regarded as one of the UK’s premier enterprise parks.

A high-tech business park representing a huge boost to the local economy and the future prosperity of Staffordshire.

i54 South Staffordshire is providing thousands of high skilled jobs for Staffordshire people, attracting hundreds of millions pound of investment into the area, and putting Staffordshire well and truly on the map.

More than £1 billion has so far been invested in i54, and is home to global companies including Aerospace company MOOG, food testing specialists Eurofins, ISP (International Security Printers), ERA, Atlas Copco and Jaguar Land Rover’s advanced engine manufacturing centre.

These companies are also soon to be joined by one of the country’s leading site machinery businesses, Morris Site Machinery.

The landmark local government investment project also featured the creation of a new dedicated £40m Motorway junction providing direct access to i54 South Staffordshire.

The current i54 site has a workforce of around 2,700 people, with half of the jobs held by people living within a ten-mile radius.

Over 3,500 students have also benefitted from a targeted skills and education programme.

Her Majesty The Queen along with the Duke of Edinburgh has made an official visit to the site.

Work has now started on an extension to i54 South Staffordshire which could generate around 1,700 more jobs and lever in up to £300 million of investment.
