Stockport

Recognised as a desirable and profitable place to do business, Stockport also offers an excellent quality of life. As a result, the town is becoming a much sought after location in which to work, live and grow a successful business.

Stockport’s strong entrepreneurial spirit has seen the local economy flourish in recent years, with many businesses benefiting from the prosperous economy.

A highly-skilled and economically active population has powered innovation and entrepreneurialism locally, establishing Stockport as a regional driver in an increasingly knowledge-based economy.

Stockport is a highly successful location for business and enterprise, reflected by its high stock of businesses and new startups. The borough is now home to more businesses than any other Manchester City Region district apart from Manchester.

In addition, easy access to transport networks with excellent motorway (M60, M56, M6), air (15 minutes from Manchester Airport) and rail (direct to London in under two hours) links make Stockport ideal for serving regional, national and international customers.

Furthermore, Stockport is home to a wide range of commercial properties, ranging from starter units in high-tech managed workspace to large speculative build projects, offering quality and diversity at competitive prices.

Bordering the Peak District, the Cheshire plains and cosmopolitan Manchester, Stockport can also complement its business offer with an outstanding quality of life; offering excellent housing, education and community facilities.

Stockport has a good lifestyle offer, with low-levels of crime and prosperous neighbourhoods.

Despite its strong economy and the fact that it is a well-populated borough, more than 43% of the borough’s land area remains green belt and there is a rich cultural and sporting tradition.
