A thriving manufacturing centre
The rapidly growing Leeds area boasts one of the most diverse economies of all the UK’s major business regions. It has the third-largest number of jobs for a local authority area, and is roughly 170 miles north of central London.
The city is the cultural, commercial, and financial centre of the West Yorkshire Urban Area, and has the fourth largest student population in England with five distinct universities.
Leeds began its manufacturing history as a mill town, but has evolved into a thriving legal and financial centre. It’s also the third-largest manufacturing hub in the UK, with roughly 1800 firms worth over 7 billion pounds annually. The most vibrant sub-sectors include chemical and pharmaceuticals, food manufacturing, drink, printing, publishing, medical technology, and engineering.
