The Nottinghamshire Growth Barometer 2017
25 January 2018
You can have too much of a good thing. Regions with an over-reliance on the growth of a particular industry can become unstuck when the sector faces hardship. In contrast, regions where growth is spread across a balanced portfolio of sectors might be expected to withstand challenges better.
And that latter situation is a fairly accurate description of Nottinghamshire. While manufacturing remains a dominant force in the business landscape, several other sectors from technology to transport, are also in good health as this analysis of the county’s top 50 fastest growing businesses shows.
This is undoubtedly good news. As the UK faces Brexit with uncertainty, a strong and diverse foundation of growth industries could be an important asset for Nottinghamshire. This Growth Barometer aims to highlight what is contributing to Nottinghamshire’s success and what is needed to maintain it.
As well as tracking the county’s leading companies, this report also includes interviews and commentary from local business leaders and those supporting and nurturing growing businesses.
We hope you find it an informative and enjoyable read.
