Unrivalled Investment Programme
Staffordshire County Council plays a major role in supporting a varied investment programme which is likely to be worth around £630 million between 2011 and 2021.
This investment into the economy has helped the local economy grow by 20 per cent since 2009 and helped to create 19,000 jobs across the economy since 2011 by working with our partners in the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
High Tech, Advanced Engineering and Medi Specialism
Through our investment in Staffordshire we have helped to make Staffordshire the centre of a thriving medical technologies sector with companies such as Erigal, Biocomposites, Recipharma Cobra Biologics, Puricore, DERMA and TRB Chemedica making their home at Keele University Science and Innovation Park. The MOD has also recently located the Defence Medical Services Training Centre at Whittington Barracks, Lichfield.
Staffordshire is also leading the way in the engineering sector with companies like, Zytek Automotive, Unimerco, Maier and Clayton Equipment making the county home to their UK base. Jaguar Land Rover decided to make the hi-tech i54 South Staffordshire site, which the county council helped to fund, home of their brand new £500m advanced engine plant.
By focusing our investments, and creating the right conditions for further economic growth we are making sure that Staffordshire County Council continues to be right for business.
