Manufacturing and engineering in Havant

The borough of Havant has a proud and established tradition of providing world-class manufacturing and engineering services. Recognised by investment from multinational companies such as Lockheed Martin, and national investment from class leaders such as Formaplex and P&I, the borough is a national hub of advanced engineering expertise.

Representing 10.2% of the total local workforce (3.8% higher than the regional average), the sector is robust in the borough. It also showed marked resilience during the last economic downturn - a tribute to the local product offer.

With a strong local workforce on tap, and ample opportunities to expand into a range of new, bespoke business sites such as Dunsbury Park, considerable manufacturing and engineering potential exists within the borough for wise investors.
