Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone

The Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone (EZ) is based on a simple premise, focusing on unlocking seven key sites along the strategic A500 Corridor to accelerate investment in a range of employment sectors, including:

  • Developing a “Ceramics Valley”, capitalising on the city’s unique selling point as the World Capital of Ceramics, home of the UK ceramics industry, and accelerating the diversification into technical ceramics;
  • Taking advantage of our unique strategic location at the heart of an engineering and automotive triangle between car assembly plants in the West Midlands, Merseyside and Derby – creating a compelling supply chain offer;
  • Building on the momentum created through the city’s unique energy offer, and Government investment and private sector interest in the proposed district heat network.
