Famously Sheffield was the centre of steel manufacturing in Britain, and today the city has an excellent reputation for engineering, research and business services. The steel industry that once dominated the city continues in more specialised forms and brings precision engineers to Sheffield.
Many businesses foster close ties to the two universities in the city – Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam – to develop new products and spark innovation. Research into the best business locations in the UK often places Sheffield in the top ten locations for new enterprises and support services.
Sheffield sits on the M1 motorway enabling a quick journey to major business centres like Leeds and Huddersfield further north, and to cities like Nottingham to the south. Mainline rail runs through the city, taking you to Birmingham or London in a few hours for meetings. And if you need to greet clients from abroad or head to the Continent there is an airport just north-west of the city.
Since the Millennium there’s been major redevelopment of parts of central Sheffield. A lot of investment has gone into creating business incubation centres and Grade A office space. Major international names like IBM have been attracted to the city and the commercial space available.
