Invest Somerset



Somerset is a hotbed of advanced engineering and manufacturing which accounts for 6.3% of total economic output - more than double the national UK average.

Our manufacturing credentials range from construction, engineering, food and beverage production to the very latest advances in avionics and electronics. Global names like Leonardo, Numatic, Charlie Bigham’s, Porr Group, Thatchers Cider and Mulberry have all invested in Somerset, creating thousands of jobs across the county, making products as diverse as the iconic Henry vacuums to the world’s most advanced military helicopters.

We are home to the largest infrastructure project in Europe at Hinkley Point, which is creating strong local supply chains and the potential for businesses to benefit from the large talent pool.

Somerset has the sites, skills and supply-chains that manufacturers will need in the future. Contact the team to see how we can help you.
