Commercial space to rent in West Yorkshire
15th June 2012
With close links to five neighbouring metropolitan boroughs and several thriving industries of its own, West Yorkshire is an increasingly attractive proposition for businesses looking for a profitable base.
With around 2.2 million inhabitants and excellent transport links via road, rail and air West Yorkshire has attracted a host of service based industries, financial institutions and two of the nation’s biggest supermarkets to the region.
Initially West Yorkshire grew up around textile and heavier engineering industries as well as traditional coal mining. But the decline of all three sectors towards the end of the 20th Century saw the focus change significantly.
As the region lies in arguably the most strategic part of Yorkshire – with the M62, M1 and A1(M) running through the county – and two mainline railway stations at Leeds and Wakefield Westgate, the arrival of service based industries was seemingly a natural progression.
