JADE Business Park


+ supply chain


County Durham has a thriving, diversified economy with the county having long been a chosen location for businesses looking to invest in the region, from NSK Bearings setting up in 1976 through to Hitachi Rail Europe opening their European HQ for high speed trains in 2015.

The automotive supply chain is particularly strong in volume manufacturing, electronics and precision engineering and includes strategic companies such as Gestamp Tallent, TRW, NSK and Novares. More than 30 companies specialising in this sector employ over 6,000 people. This established manufacturing base of suppliers serves Nissan, Caterpillar and Komatsu as well as supplying other automotive OEMs around the UK.

As well as this strong manufacturing and supply chain base, Durham is also home to a wide number of diverse businesses many of which have strong links through R&D with the world renowned universities in the region.

The science park at NETPark is one example of how County Durham provides opportunities for manufacturers to explore the potential of new technologies and applications. Key partners are CPI and Durham University and capabilities exist, backed by the Catapult programme, in materials integration, nano-technology and printed electronics.
