North Lincolnshire; The right place to do business Image

What makes North Lincolnshire such a compelling investment proposition?

We can offer the sectors, the talent, the premises and the access to customers, markets and supply chains you'd expect from a leading European business location – but at a more competitive cost than other major UK areas.

With the Humber University Technical College and Hull University on our doorstep, and strong collaboration between academics and businesses, we're the ideal location for companies looking to exploit the exciting growing sectors of Renewables and Engineering.

Reasons to Invest

  • A Chance to be Part of Something Really Special - We are at the forefront of creating the largest hub of renewable energy manufacturers and their supply chains in the Humber to become the UK’s Renewables & Energy capital.

  • Strategic Location – Easy access to the UK's major motorway network linking us to Sheffield, Leeds, York and the rest of the country. Regular train links to Manchester, London, Scotland and beyond. Access to 40 million customers within a 4 hour drive as well as exceptional access to and from Europe and global trade routes, by sea and air, meaning 370 million potential customers are right next door.

  • Forward Thinking – Recognised for Excellence -  Access to £40m Regional Growth Fund (RGF), £10m North Lincolnshire RGF, £10m Northern Lincolnshire RGF and £20m Humber RGF.

  • Quality of life - 80 villages and hamlets and 6 market towns set in 329 square miles of Lincolnshire Wolds and countryside. A distinct advantage over our competitors through our offer of cost and quality. We have some of the most affordable and high quality housing in the country.

  • Can do attitude - We are dynamic, high performing and customer focused. “A local authority ready to be flexible and respond to your needs who also share pride in delivering big projects on / ahead of time” Source:  Able UK.
