The central location is a huge attraction for businesses. Not only is it ideal for logistics, but it also enables them to extend the talent pool to the 1.9 million people living within an hour of the town. 


We have a diverse and fearless business base. The entrepreneurs and businesses are primed to move forward and not afraid to break away from the pack. We have an excellent reputation for attracting superb talent too. Talent that stimulates innovation and increases investments.
