...for a local skilled workforce “We are delighted to be working with Wilton and Clugston on this project.

Sunderland is continuing to take tremendous strides using technological innovation as the engine to drive forward development and to attract business, investment and jobs. The city’s landscape has changed hugely in recent years with the success of major developments like Doxford International Business Park, Rainton Bridge and Hylton Riverside, helping to raise the city’s profile, attract fresh investment and create new jobs. Over the past seven years (2000-06), major employers attracted to the city have brought more than 12,000 new jobs and almost £1.7 billion of investment. Sunderland was named by KPMG as one of the top five places in the UK for business, sustaining its reputation as a centre for corporate and SME business investment.

...join us... Since the mid 1990’s, the City has been transformed through the development of a range of key business sectors, including automotive manufacturing and financial services, which each employ around 10,000 people. Sunderland is one of the UK’s most competitive business locations, and has been highly successful in attracting internationally-mobile inward investment. It is home to a host of world-class companies, such as Nissan, Rolls-Royce, Barclays, T-Mobile and EDF Energy.

“One of the main reasons Nissan chose to site its UK manufacturing plant in Sunderland was the availabilty, skills and experience of the regional workforce. This decision has been repaid many times over throughout the last 23 years, and our employees continue to form the driving force behind our plant’s success.” Danny Griffiths Personnel Director (Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK Ltd. Sunderland Plant)
“Turbine Business Park presents a prime opportunity for business development at the entrance to the City of Sunderland. It reflects the growing opportunities in Sunderland and the exciting vision of the city’s future. One NorthEast was delighted to facilitate the close working relationship between Nissan, Sunderland City Council and the developers Wilton and Clugston, to help bring about the fantastic double announcement of a new business park on part of the Nissan site, while Nissan itself progresses the expansion of its car plant. The new business park has the potential to bring more than 4,000 new jobs to the city across a wide range of industries to substantially add to Sunderland’s business stock. Its close proximity to the A19 and A1 makes Turbine Business Park an attractive location with a skilled, motivated workforce to access in the surrounding area.” Ian Williams Director of Business & Industry, One North East
