Find your perfect industrial unit to let in Derby
Derby was recently identified in a UK Powerhouse report as the fastest growing city economy in the East Midlands and one of the UK’s top ten fastest growing cities. Both of these statistics are underpinned by the city’s exceptional reputation for advanced manufacturing and engineering, giving innovative companies considerable opportunities when making Derby their home.
A world-renowned hub for advanced transport manufacturing
Derby’s history with manufacturing and engineering dates back to the early 18th century, when the city unveiled the UK’s first water-powered silk mill. Its industry has come on leaps and bounds since then, with the early 20th century industrial boom giving rise to automotive and railway manufacturing plants here in Derby. The world-renowned Rolls-Royce remains the city’s biggest employers, while fellow car manufacturer Toyota is also based here.
Bombardier is still situated in the Derby area, manufacturing much of Britain’s railway rolling stock at its Litchurch Lane Works. Given Derby’s close links with Rolls-Royce, the city is also home to the West Midlands aerospace cluster, with its civil aerospace operations considered the world’s second largest manufacturing base for aircraft engines.
Enviable transport links across the country and beyond
Situated on the banks of the River Derwent in the south of Derbyshire, Derby offer exceptional road and rail links to all four corners of the country. With the M1 motorway, A6 and A52 connecting the city to the rest of the East Midlands, as well as the North and South. East Midlands Airport is also less than 15 miles from Derby city centre, ideal for developing nationwide and continental business links too.
