Businesses back bid to boost Tees Valley


Harvey & Hugo is proud to support the newly launched Live Work Play in Tees Valley campaign.

Live Work Play in Tees Valley, which launched on Tuesday 5th July at the Tees Valley Business Summit, will highlight what Tees Valley offers companies already based here and those considering starting up, expanding or relocating to the area.

Tees Valley has a rich industrial history but the changing landscape has seen the area adapt and grow in a range of other sectors such as digital and creative, low carbon technology, logistics, advanced manufacturing and engineering.

Across many sectors Tees Valley is at the forefront; constructing offshore wind projects in the North Sea; exploring opportunities for industrial symbiosis; pioneering new feedstock technologies; developing a cluster of biofuel plants; leading on carbon capture technology; delivering world class engineering; supporting business with technology enabled business process outsourcing; and building on world-class businesses.

Live Work Play aims to build on this local pride, showcasing the potential opportunities available within the thriving business community while highlighting the benefits of living in Tees Valley and the leisure and cultural facilities on offer.

It comes as the results of a survey have shown that three in four businesses in Tees Valley rate the area as a positive place to do business.

The research highlights the business community’s positive perceptions of the Tees Valley and shows increased expectations of future growth and a desire to attract a skilled workforce to the area.

Managing Director of Harvey & Hugo Charlotte Nichols, said: “We’re proud to support Live Work Play in Tees Valley and help play our part in promoting the rich business landscape that this area offers.”

Dave Budd, Mayor of Middlesbrough and Chair of Tees Valley Combined Authority, said: “It’s such an exciting time for Tees Valley and we know that people living and working here already are proud of the area. We also know that in the business community will support our campaign to help showcase our area to a wider audience.”

The campaign – which is a close collaboration between Tees Valley Combined Authority, Tees Valley Unlimited, and the five local authorities – has been backed by the North East England Chamber of Commerce.
