Find your perfect commercial property to let in Walsall
Walsall is an area of the West Midlands that has experienced significant business investment in recent years. Walsall Council took the decision to invest in its own Economic Growth Programme, helping to support hundreds more apprenticeships, get thousands more local residents into employment and encourage ambitious, growing firms to invest in the town.
A spotlight on Walsall’s multi-faceted economy
The area of Walsall has enjoyed a varied economy during the last two centuries. It was a former hub for coal mining and metal work, but in the late 1800s, Walsall turned its hand as an epicentre for the leather trade. In fact, to this very day, Walsall is still an industry leader in leathergoods, most notably saddle manufacturing.
Other notable light industries operating in Walsall today include aerospace parts, electronics, chemicals and iron and brass founding. These businesses, along with several other domestic and international firms such as the RAC, choose Walsall as a base for their organisations because of the town’s access to a talent pool of highly skilled, well-educated professionals.
An available talent pool that spans into Birmingham
With several leading universities in and around Birmingham and the West Midlands, Walsall is strategically placed for growing businesses looking to snap up graduate talent and breathe new life into their operations. Walsall’s talent pool extends well and truly into Birmingham city centre, due to the fact that Walsall train station is served by four trains per hour. Looking further afield, Walsall is a great base for businesses that do business to the north and south of the area, with links to Glasgow via the M1 and M74 and Manchester via the A34, as well as London via the M42.
