Who's already here?

From TWI to Nokia, from Marshall Group to the Wellcome Trust, a variety of national and international names have chosen to make their home in South Cambridgeshire and enjoy the benefits of ‘Cambridge Plus’.

That starts with proximity to the special combination of industry and academia that is the city of Cambridge itself. It continues with the choice of business locations amongst settled communities populated by an educated and skilled workforce. And flows onwards as businesses connect by road rail, air and the virtual superhighway to the rest of the UK and beyond.

Principal clusters include the companies doing pioneering work in technology and life sciences (South Cambridgeshire has a concentration of high tech that is 18 times the national average). They also include a concentration of advanced agricultural businesses, together with traditional engineering and companies linked to the tourism sector. Cambridge Plus works for global leaders and classic small and medium enterprises.

It’s an inspirational place both in and out of work and one where people have been prospering professionally and personally for many years. Use the dropdown menu to browse the main industry sectors and then take a closer look to learn more about a selection of companies who are already here.
