We spoke to a variety of companies in Slough and asked them what brought them here. For some it is the transport connections – both Heathrow and London are under 20 minutes away. For others it is the calibre of people who live along the Thames Valley. Some are here because top businesses from their industry are in Slough, giving opportunities to collaborate.
To support our key sectors in Slough, we have an economic study seeking to provide an up to date picture of the nature of the business community in Slough and the growth potential of the business base.

A record 194 companies were officially registered with a Slough address during March 2012, beating the previous best of 186 in March 2007.
