Wrexham says ‘hello’

Everyone needs a ‘thing’.

A talent or skill they’re known for. Something that makes them stand out. “That’s my thing. That’s what I do.”

So what’s Wrexham’s thing? The answer could be ‘innovation.’

Wrexham has always played its part in pushing the world forward with new ideas and technology. We can’t help ourselves. It’s in our blood.

From the radical techniques used by Thomas Telford to build Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (now a World Heritage Site) over 200 years ago, to groundbreaking work going on right here and now at Glyndwr University.

An example? The university is helping to develop the world’s biggest telescope. Helping to unlock the secrets of the universe. That’s a massive thing to be involved with.

You see, Wrexham has always been kind of obsessed with the future. Obsessed with new ideas. New thinking.

So there’s a little insight into Wrexham’s ‘thing.’ But we digress. Aside from being an innovative sort of place, you want to know why Wrexham is a good place to do business. Right?

Try this.

the right place

A central location and great road and rail links mean one third of the UK population is within 90 minutes’ drive.

We’re also just 45 minutes from two major airports (Liverpool John Lennon and Manchester International) and a major sea ports (Port of Liverpool and Holyhead Port, Anglesey).

the right skills

But it’s not all about location. Skills pay the bills. And we’ve got the skills to help your business grow.

Wrexham is within 50 miles of nine universities, including its very own – Glyndwr. Plus our great transport links help people from across the UK – many with highly specialised skills – commute here.

the right environment

The final point is that we’re built for business.

Wrexham Council maintains almost one million square foot of commercial property and the area is serviced by state-of-the-art fibre optic networks that allow you to harness the most advanced communications technology.
