Historic Bridgewater is one of the largest towns in Somerset. The local area has been a major trading post since the industrial revolution when locally produced goods such as iron, stone and glassware were shipped across the world. Today those traditional industries have been replaced by modern equivalents such as plastic moulding, industrial chemicals, food production and renewable energy.
The town benefits from being located halfway between Bristol and Exeter. This makes it ideal for companies seeking to expand across the South West. The Express Business Park, located to the south of the town, provides a range of high-quality serviced office and industrial space well suited to today’s fast-growing companies. Major companies located in the park include the NHS Logistics Authority, Gerber Juice and Toolstation.
The town also sits at the forefront of the renewable energy revolution. The Somerset Energy Innovation Centre is located to the north of the town and provides the ideal base for companies in the low carbon energy sector. The centre aims to provide opportunities for entrepreneurs and business owners to develop new partnerships with key stakeholders in the sector.
