From scaleups to global brands
From innovative entrepreneurs and scale-ups to leading global brands, businesses are recognising the many reasons to move to Somerset West and Taunton and seizing the opportunity to drive change and shape the future of their sector within the district.
Central and local government investment in the district’s growth, and support for emerging sectors, such as Medtech and Renewable Energy, has opened up opportunities for businesses looking for a more cost effective alternative to London and other major UK cities.
Excellent transport connectivity to global markets, access to world-class educational and research establishments, and comparatively lower cost business premises, than many UK cities, has enhanced the investment and growth opportunities for businesses in key sectors
It is not surprising, therefore, that so many leading global brands are choosing to make the Somerset West and Taunton region their home.
