opened in February 2016. Located on the edge of Bridgwater, with good access to the M5, It will provide a hub for ambitious businesses seeking to collaborate and exploit opportunities in the energy sectors, It will be a catalyst for innovation, providing dynamic space and expert support for those involved in the growing low carbon energy supply chain. The Centre is one of a range of


A


Enterprise and Innovation centres, and work hubs, that are now available across the County. These can provide flexible easy tenures; competitive rates; business support services; networking opportunities; and additional facilities such as meeting and training rooms. The Into Somerset website has an


interactive map indicating the various opportunities, District by District, and details of funding opportunities, events and the latest business news, all continuously updated. The website and service caters for all


the key sectors, from low carbon energy; through to advanced engineering and aeronautical; to Food & Drink; Business Services; the Creative Industries; Distribution & Logistics; and there are numerous case studies of businesses that have re-located to Somerset to inspire the next wave of incomers. Somerset has been home to some


world leading aeronautical and advanced engineering companies for generations: AgustaWestland; Aerosystems International; Honeywell Aerospace UK; Numatic International (makers of the Henry vacuums); Gooch & Housego (optical components); and Ariel Motor Company. With numerous smaller companies in the supply chains for each of these long-

standing first rate businesses, it’s not surprising that there is incredible scope for innovation and the development of new ‘spin off’ companies. With many of these particular


companies based in Yeovil or the surrounding area, the well trained and qualified technical staff pool that exists allows growth of new projects on a seemingly endless basis. A number of these new businesses have started up in the Yeovil Innovation Centre and then gone on to larger premises. Other growing Somerset companies


which are trail-blazing away, such as Pro- Biotic, near Ilminster, or Singer Instruments, near Minehead, have found that Somerset is the perfect place to be in order to grow their companies and export to the world. Even the Top UK Power Play Art Dealers, Hauser & Wirth, have been tempted to invest millions in order to make the market


town of Bruton their latest gallery space in a list that previously only included London, New York, Los Angeles, and Zurich. To support the development of such


new and emerging businesses, and the re- location of business from elsewhere looking to be part of Somerset’s growing economy, there are a range of support

measures in place. The Into Somerset inward investment service is provided by the County’s 5 District Councils working with the County Council. This ensures good local knowledge of available opportunities; development sites in the pipeline; and a ready-made introduction to other local companies and networks. The Somerset Chamber of Commerce is also a keen ambassador, networker and supporter of business. The Into Somerset website has full


details and links to these options, but also includes a commercial property search function that currently carries details, refreshed daily, of over 700 available properties across the County. Register an enquiry now; use our
