Home to one of the strongest and fastest growing
economies in the country, we are one of the best
place to invest in the UK.
Our economy is going from strength to strength.
We have the second highest GVA per head in
England, delivering 20% more output per person
than the UK average, and produce 25% of the
North West’s manufacturing output.
At our current rate of growth, we are set to
overtake Liverpool and Lancashire to become the
second biggest economy in the North West, and
the third biggest sub-regional economy in the
We have a wealth of exciting investment
opportunities including the Cheshire Science
Corridor, HS2, Warrington New City and the
Mersey Dee Economic Alliance. The Cheshire
Science Corridor is home to nationally significant
assets including a European centre for nuclear
engineering consultancies, Jodrell Bank, home to
the world’s biggest science experiment, and the
UK’s largest chemical engineering cluster.
The arrival of HS2 in Crewe brings with it huge
opportunities for investors, in what will be
the best connected place in the UK when the

THE CONSTELLATION PARTNERSHIP
A CONSTELLATION OF CONNECTED PLACES
HS2 is fast becoming a reality. The first phase
to Birmingham was recently given Royal Assent
and the Bill for Phase 2, which will bring HS2
from Birmingham to Crewe, is now in Parliament.
By 2027, Crewe will have a state of the art new
station, and by 2033, when the HS2 Hub is
complete, the town will be 55 minutes by rail
from London and 20 minutes from Birmingham
This will transform rail connectivity not just into
Crewe but for to the areas around it.
This gives Cheshire, Stoke-on-Trent and North
Staffordshire unrivalled growth potential.
The local authorities and two Local Enterprise
Partnerships across this area have developed
the ground-breaking Constellation Partnership to
capture this opportunity.
Backed by the Government, the Constellation
Partnership aims to deliver more than 100,000
new homes and 120,000 jobs by 2040 and is set
to drive huge opportunities for those looking to
invest in the UK. The area is particularly attractive,
providing significant rental and capital growth
potential through a combination of greenfield
developments, urban and city centre schemes.
The area is already a vibrant investment
opportunity on the route for much of the
country’s existing north-south road and rail
systems. Investors can also take advantage
of Constellation’s east-west connectivity, via
Stoke-on-Trent and Crewe, as well as global
connections through major international airports
in Manchester and Birmingham.
Outstanding investment opportunities
When HS2 arrives, investment in Constellation is
likely to surge.
The region is served by leading universities,
benefits from a highly-skilled population, a diverse
manufacturing supply chain, substantial land
availability, and excellent natural environments.
Building on the unrivalled connectivity of HS2,
the Constellation Partnership aims to create a
distinctive network of connected and successful

the Sunday Times, ‘second to none’.
Home to over 8500 businesses Warrington boasts
the highest GVA per worker in the North of
England at £49,000 per worker.
Its specific business sector clusters include
Engineering, Logistics, Telecommunications and
Nuclear. In fact Warrington has the largest cluster
of nuclear based businesses in the UK including
Sellafield, Wood, The NDA and Nuvia. Birchwood
Park in East Warrington can rightly be said to be
the home of Nuclear industry in the UK.
Projects included within ‘Warrington Means

Turning molecules into medicines for 60 years
The North West is an important hub for AstraZeneca
– a centre of innovation, science and high-tech
manufacturing. It’s a place where creative, talented
and committed people can make their mark. It’s a
place where molecules are turned into medicines.
With more than 4,000 employees, the largest
medicines manufacturing facility in the UK and over
800 people who develop new medicines, AstraZeneca
is a powerhouse in a region whose people change
lives for the better.
Our campus at Macclesfield is home to AstraZeneca’s
largest Pharmaceutical Technology and Development
(PTD) team – it is these people who help transform
new discoveries made at our research facilities into
medicines that can be manufactured and given to
patients. Without Pharmaceutical Development,
there’d be new molecules, but no new medicines.
These development scientists work closely alongside
colleagues who are exceptionally experienced in
manufacturing complex medicines. Having these
teams working closely together allows AstraZeneca to
develop new medicines safely and quickly, ensuring
patients can receive innovative new treatments in the
fastest time possible.
Macclesfield is also home to our second largest IT hub,
providing critical systems that support delivery of our
Seven miles away at Alderley Park, is the site where
the first approvals were granted for over 30 medicines
discovered in the North West. This site, now owned by
Manchester Science Partnerships, sees a fast-growing
community of scientific start-up businesses utilising
the state of the art laboratory facilities. Many of these
exciting new ventures will no doubt spearhead the
future of medicines and new scientific discovery.
In Liverpool we develop and produce flu vaccinations
for the UK’s child vaccination programme. The 300
plus team is constantly seeking to improve our ability
to beat new strains and mutations to help minimise
the impact of the seasonal flu virus.
Investing in the future
Developing and manufacturing medicines means
investing in new plants, equipment and people. At
Macclesfield we recently invested £120m into the
production of one key anti-cancer drug alone. We are
also investing £60m into our state of the art packing
and warehouse facility.
For AstraZeneca the North West is a vibrant life
science cluster, a strong talent pool and a great place
to do business.
