This support makes putting investment funds into the area easier than ever, and underlines what a great place Tees Valley is to live and work in.

Tees Valley is known for its strong background in industrial and manufacturing industries, and recent investment in unprecedented new technologies in the energy, subsea and biologic sectors has meant that Tees Valley currently contributes over £10 billion per annum to the national economy. Following the signing of the devolution deal in October 2015, we have been able to ensure that funds are available to open up new opportunities for local businesses and potential new investors in the area.
