Supply Chain

Ashfield and Mansfield’s location makes it an ideal location for businesses serving manufacturers, having large-scale OEM operations located within a 1-hour HGV drive time including Rolls-Royce (Derby), Toyota (Burnaston), JCB (Foston), Bombardier (Derby) and Caterpillar (Leicester).

Connectivity to Key UK Automotive Sites:

The ‘reshoring’ phenomenon means that 70% of car manufacturers or supply chain businesses are planning to return production to the UK in the next two years.  With 40% of UK car production taking place in the Midlands, Ashfield and Mansfield provides an ideal location for ‘reshoring’ automotive supply chain businesses.

The UK’s major car manufacturing facilities are dispersed across the UK, and the East Midlands offer an ideal location for suppliers serving plants from Swindon (Honda) to Sunderland (Nissan).

Connectivity to Key UK Aerospace Sites:

In addition to the cluster around Rolls-Royce in Derby, aerospace manufacturing is dispersed across the UK, in key locations including:

  • Bristol/South West: e.g. Airbus, Rolls Royce
  • Deeside/North Wales: Airbus and suppliers
  • The North West: Aerospace cluster
  • Scotland: Rolls-Royce facilities

As with the automotive sector, all of these locations are easily accessible from a central location in Ashfield and Mansfield.
