A recent report from the Land Registry highlighted that Corby is the fastest growing town in the country and no wonder! The beauty of Corby is in its ability to respond to the changing needs of businesses, and by having the right skills, sites and support that makes the difference between success and failure. The area is committed to growth and that means a great choice of new development sites, government initiatives to boost skills and education, modern transport infrastructure and the most supportive local agencies in the country.

It is this mix of people and places that is proving so attractive to innovative start-up businesses, growing local firms and companies that are new to the area.

Although there are some industries which are particularly well represented in the area, such as food and drink, engineering and logistics, it is the rich diversity of companies and industries which make Corby such an exciting business location.

The local economy is powered by businesses such as Avon, AGI Amray, Jayplas, Roquette, RS Components, Tata and Weetabix – with many newcomers such as the American firm Amy’s Kitchen and Staples, attracted by the town’s accessibility, value and space for expansion.
