Key Sites

Kirkleatham Business Park

Redcar and Cleveland’s most prestigious, greenfield site located adjacent to Wilton International.  Home to worldwide automotive manufacturer Elring Klinger and UK Steel Enterprise’s established business centre, the park also houses a variety of local and national companies.

The 25 hectare site is owned by Homes England and is targeted at the Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering, Chemicals, Renewable Energy and Professional Services Sectors.  An ideal location for process industry supply chain companies given its proximity to Wilton International and the South Tees Development Corporation site.


Teesworks, the first Mayoral Development Corporation established outside of London, is regenerating one of Europe’s largest and most innovative industrial sites, right in the heart of the borough.

Major international companies, including Anglo American and MGT Teesside, have recently invested in the 1800 hectare site on the south bank of the River Tees, alongside the deep water industrial port of Teesport.

The Development Corporation can draw on a wide range of powers, covering infrastructure, financial incentives, regeneration and land acquisition and has produced a Masterplan outlining how the regeneration of the area will continue.  The Development Corporation is chaired by the elected Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen.
