Sandwell has become a location of choice for industries of the future where the local economy and high performing companies continue to grow.

The new West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) says the region’s strengths and opportunities lie in the advanced manufacturing sector, new digital industries and the harnessing of environmental technologies.

Sandwell has many strong businesses that are developing to build resilience for the future – but there is more we need to do to put Sandwell at the forefront of a successful regional economy.

By 2030, Sandwell will have geared up to attract the industries of the future to locate, expand or do business in the borough.

This means making sure the best companies have the land, trained workforce and necessary infrastructure to grow and prosper.

Sandwell’s economy will be resilient and flexible, able to respond and evolve because all the basics will be in place.
