North East Lincolnshire has established supply-chains in key industries such as:

All supported with great housing and development and a thriving visitor economy.

We have many great names that have become an important part of local life. The UK’s number one seafood company, Young’s, has its global headquarters in Grimsby. The likes of Novartis and Phillips66 have major process facilities in the area.

These companies benefit from the well-functioning and overlapping supply-chains. With around 500 food-related firms and hundreds of logistics and engineering businesses, there’s always plenty of opportunities for new businesses.

For ambitious companies, North East Lincolnshire offers a platform for growth, innovation and partnering with market leaders. Local start-up businesses can access the expertise and support of global players in a way that would not be possible in a large city.

Tremendous opportunities in the field of renewable energy, especially offshore wind and bioenergy, will create the green collar jobs of the future. Not for the first time in its rich history, the Grimsby area stands to benefit from its coastal position.

Whether it is leading the world in cutting-edge food research, developing innovative packaging and storage solutions or manufacturing drugs, North East Lincolnshire is set to be at the heart of new opportunities across a range of sectors.
