Manufacturing’s modern birthplace
Birmingham is second only to London in size, boasting roughly 1.1 million inhabitants in the city and 3.8 million within the metropolitan area. It’s the eighth-largest metropolitan area in the entire EU, and has earned itself a nickname as the nation’s “Second City.”
A social, financial, cultural, and commercial centre, it was once a medieval market town. The city grew to become the “first manufacturing town in the world” by 1791, laying the foundations of modern manufacturing via thousands of small, highly specialized workshops and communities of skilled tradesmen.
Public administration, health, and education join engineering, finance, and tourism for a diverse local economy. Major manufacturing in the area focuses on automotive and precision-based products, along with traditional craftsmen of guns, jewellery, and speciality goods.
