About Ebbw Vale Enterprise Zone

About Ebbw Vale Enterprise Zone Banner

Ebbw Vale Enterprise Zone is a focal point for manufacturing in Wales, with the skills you would expect from both a longstanding heritage in the sector and existing resident international and indigenous manufacturers.

As well as contributing to Welsh productivity levels that are higher than the UK average, the Zone presents an attractive economic option, too. Not only does it attract some of the highest levels of financial support available in the UK (down to its Tier 1 status), but competitive salary and property costs also keep overheads down.

Its strong strategic location in south east Wales provides easy access to customers and the supply chain in the region and with other manufacturing hubs in the UK, including the West Midlands. Access is only set to improve, with the nearby A465 Heads of the Valleys road currently being upgraded with around £800m of investment.

There’s also plenty of space to grow, with five key sites of prime development land, and 100 per cent room for expansion. There’s outline planning permission throughout the Zone, while fast-tracking means any planning decisions are normally made within just eight weeks.
