Hereford Enterprise Zone

A world-class business landscape with a unique defence and security sector focus

Defence expertise:

Skylon Park is the 72-hectare site of the Hereford Enterprise Zone. Building on the area’s wealth of defence expertise and on the deep rooted association Hereford has with UK special forces as the base of the SAS, it is the only Enterprise Zone with a defence and security focus. More than 200 companies operate in the sector in Herefordshire.

Advanced engineering:

Known for the strength of its advanced manufacturing, engineering and technologies sector, many of the region’s firms operate as top tier suppliers to defence companies both in the UK and overseas. Co-location to Hereford Enterprise Zone presents an ideal opportunity for these companies to unlock supply chain benefits.

Latest developments:

Multi-million pound investments currently include Beck Group, Marches Group, Western Power Distribution, Techtest Ltd, Pearson Precision Engineering and Woodstock Trading Company. Skylon Court, a £1.7 million development offering high quality business space and workshops on a short term rental basis, is now complete and full.  Skylon Place, offering units totalling 9,500 sq ft is also recently completed and partially let.  Many more plots are development ready with all utilities available.  Ultrafast and superfast broadband are available.

Businesses also benefit from the University of Wolverhampton’s Business Solutions Centre and the Herefordshire Growth Hub, co-located at Skylon Court and offering a wide range of support and advice to businesses.
