Bristol – Recruitment agency
Sigma Recruitment agency has provided services to a diverse range of manufacturing companies across Bristol, Bath, Swindon, the M4 corridor and surrounding areas.
Business in Bristol has always had a long association with the sea and its ports. Aeronautics played a major role in the economy of Bristol in the twentieth century and aircraft manufacturing became an important sector based at Filton and Patchway (British Aeroplane Company and Rolls Royce). In the 1960’s Concorde assembly lines were based in Filton .
On 26 November 2003, Concorde 216 (G-BOAF) made the final ever Concorde flight, returning to Filton airfield to be kept there permanently as the centrepiece of a projected air museum. The major aeronautical companies in Bristol now are BAE Systems, Airbus and Rolls Royce both based at Filton. Yet another aeronautical company based in Bristol is Cameron Balloons who manufacture hot air balloons. Conveniently every August Bristol hosts the Bristol International Balloon Festival.
The Bristol Port Company operates the surviving commercial docks of the Port of Bristol at Portbury and Avonmouth the fifteenth largest port in the UK. The main trades are forest products, cars, containers, bulk (coal, grain, animal feeds, aggregates), liquids (petroleum, aviation fuel, molasses, fruit juice), metals, and fresh produce.
Bristol also has a worldwide reputation in the tobacco trade. The head office of Imperial Tobacco one of the largest tobacco companies in the World is located in Bristol as well as an international cigar factory. Other manufacturing sectors represented in the Bristol area include chemical manufacturing, automotive manufacturing, aerospace manufacturing, food manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
