Wilton International offers major advantages to energy-intensive businesses looking to succeed. The 2,000 acre site is one of the UK’s most important locations for process industry manufacturing. Centred on Teesside in North East England – a major UK exporting region – the “can do” attitude of the people and the site’s distinctive features and capabilities make it attractive to a broad range of businesses, particularly those in industrial sectors requiring large amounts of energy. Recent years have seen significant investments by firms in rapidly growing high value, low carbon areas. These include green energy, biofuels and plastics recycling operations. Other sectors - including minerals processing, automotive, data centres and advanced manufacturing - are also recognising the many attractions of Wilton. With shared access to low cost power, steam and other utilities, the integrated site infrastructure and high quality site services, firms also derive benefits from the strengths and shared economic ambition of the Teesside area. These include supportive local MPs, Government and business partner organisations and excellent transport communications enabling easy access to markets, superb supply chain companies and a flexible workforce steeped in process operation experience.
