Find your perfect commercial property to let in Smethwick
Throughout the 18th century, much of Smethwick’s trade and industry centred around the canals, with much heavy industry located here, bringing rail links to the town from 1852. The town’s steelworks was credited with manufacturing the structure for London’s Crystal Palace, while Smethwick was also home to one of Britain’s most notable steam engine builders of the late 19th century. Fast forward to the present day and light industries still remain, albeit by no means on the same scale as the 18th and 19th centuries.
Service-based industries also reign supreme, with its central UK location providing a strong strategic hub for nationwide logistics and courier firms.
The impact of the 2022 Commonwealth Games
Recent years have brought significant regeneration and investment to the town of Smethwick. That’s because the city of Birmingham is played host to the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Smethwick was very much at the heart of the Games, with a new state-of-the-art aquatics centre hosting the diving and swimming events at a cost of £500m.
Smethwick’s ‘Games Gift'
It is forecast that Smethwick and the rest of the West Midlands will benefit from a ‘Games Gift’ of £1.5 billion in 2023, thanks to the lasting commercial and tourism legacy of the 2022 Commonwealth Games. With Smethwick sure to be in the media spotlight in the coming years, it’s also a great time to be based here for brands looking to heighten their national and international exposure.
