Manufacturing and engineering – Cardiff history.
The capital city is the driver of the Welsh economy being a significant centre of business that also acts a catalyst for business across South East Wales and the Vale of Glamorgan.
In 2008, there were approx 200,000 people in employment in Cardiff of which around 130,000 live in the city. Approx 70,000 workers commute from the surrounding region with just under 30,000 inhabitants of Cardiff commuting out of the city.
Cardiff has in the past been an important world centre for coal and steel and in the 19th century was the world’s leading port for coal exportation and steel production.The decline of the port of Cardiff commenced in the 1890’s as a result of falling demand for coal. By the 1980’s large areas of Cardiff docks were derelict, and a regeneration project transformed Cardiff’s waterfront into a “must see” destination.
Cardiff has continually reinvented itself and it now has approximately 100 bioscience related companies and organisations and with the help of Cardiff University which has a growing international reputation for research expertise in bioscience related disciplines.
The manufacturing sector in Cardiff is diverse ranging from life sciences, automotive, steel production, to medical devices, consumer electronics, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing. In addition companies such as GE Healthcare, Celsa Steel UK, Bio Trace and Cogent, help to create a vibrant sector as a result of the impact of Cardiff University with its 2,500 local students and 500 doctorates in bioscience related disciplines.
