Celebrating i54 South Staffordshire

It was a privilege to meet up with our partners and businesses at our i54 South Staffordshire celebration event and thank all of the partners involved in the project, including local enterprise partnerships, Government and transport providers.

We have delivered the project on time, on budget and there’s four major businesses now up and running on site, showcasing the best of British engineering, science and advanced manufacturing. The site has secured hundreds of millions of pounds of investment with major companies now operational on site – Jaguar Land Rover, Moog, Eurofins and ISP – who will collectively employ 2,000 people.

We’ve  come a long way in just a few years, turning i54 South Staffordshire from a brownfield site in the midst of the recession to part of the best performing Enterprise Zone in the country.  Although almost 90% of the 239 acre site is now occupied we are continuing to attract more businesses.

This enterprise has helped to create thousands of jobs for our people both on i54 and in the local supply chain, with apprenticeships and skills programmes offering better opportunities for future generations too.
