Industry Strengths

Research at Diodes

The Manchester City Region is recognised at national and international level as being particularly strong in a number of leading industry sectors. The rapid expansion of these sectors in Manchester has undoubtably been instrumental in the growth of the city region.

Knowledge-based industries are thriving in the city region, as Manchester is fast becoming one of the most important city regions in the UK for research, development, innovation and academic excellence. The strength of the innovative process in Manchester has lead to the development of a number of high-value niche specialisms, in areas such as biotechnology, software development, ICT, electronics, environmental technologies, chemicals and textiles.

Also, as a regional and national centre of excellence for the service sector, the city region is home to a wealth of corporate services firms from major shared service centres and outsourcers to leaders in banking and financial services. Logistics-based activities also form a key part of the service sector in Manchester, thanks to the city region’s location at the heart of the UK’s transport network and its reputation as a leading centre for financial intermediation.

Manchester’s cosmopolitan outlook and thriving cultural scene also makes the area a hot-bed for the unique output of a wide range of creative industries.

MIDAS’ business development managers have a wealth of industry-specific knowledge and work proactively within these industries in which the city region excels.
