About Deeside Enterprise Zone

North Wales is a major manufacturing location with considerable strengths in the aerospace, automotive, construction, food, paper and packaging, electronics and sustainable energy sectors.

With its advanced manufacturing skills and heritage, Deeside is already the base for a number of major international manufacturing companies but offers plenty of room and opportunities for new businesses.

You’ll know which part of the Zone is for you as soon as you look around. We’re planning an Advanced Manufacturing Institute, focused on R&D, skills development and the commercialisation of technology. There’s a development-ready 90-hectare site here with full planning permission; another area is focused on sustainable energy businesses; and our aerospace park has its own Advanced Composites Research, Training and Development Centre.
