The county of Somerset can be found nestled between two other popular areas: Gloucestershire to the north-east and Devon to the south-west. It’s ideally located just off the M5 motorway which makes travelling through Somerset quick and easy. The A303 road runs through its length, providing access to the towns of Glastonbury and Street in the east. In the south-west, visitors can find Taunton, Wells and Yeovil.
Somerset’s good motorway access makes it a great location for logistics firms. The area is well known for its food production industry and has distribution centres throughout the county to ensure fast delivery times. There are also several ports located along Somerset's coast including Bristol, Bridgwater Bay, Exmouth Harbour and Plymouth Sound.
In addition to its thriving logistics industry, Somerset is a major centre for manufacturing and engineering. Aerospace, defence, aerospace, automotive and advanced engineering are all strong industries in the region. Many of these companies rely on skilled workers to produce high quality components and products.
The population of Somerset is estimated to be around 1 million people. The county has experienced steady growth over the last decade with many families relocating from nearby areas such as Bristol and Bath. It’s also a popular area for retirees who enjoy its easy access to nature as well as its many historic sites.
Somerset has been the recipient of significant investment in recent years. In 2020, more than £7 million was allocated to develop a new technology park at Bristol Airport which is expected to create thousands of jobs and boost the economy of the county. Meanwhile, local authorities are investing heavily in regeneration projects to create new housing in areas such as Taunton and Yeovil.
