It is just nine miles from Manchester City Centre, and your staff and goods can be at Manchester Airport, the largest in the UK outside London, in under an hour. In other words, Heywood gives you easy access to the people and markets of the North, the UK and the world.

A distribution capital


Heywood sits in the heart of one of the UK’s major centres for the distribution industry. One in five logistics businesses within Greater Manchester are located in Rochdale, with around 27,000 people employed in the sector within a 30 minute drive of the town. Logistics businesses choose Rochdale for its excellent location, competitive cost base and abundant labour supply: around 1.6 million people live in easy commuting distance of the borough.

The local workforce is both skilled and cost-effective to employ. Over half of Rochdale Borough’s labour pool is qualified to NVQ Level 3 or above. At the same time, salary levels are almost 24% lower than the national average. For more senior positions, local universities offer supply chain management courses to masters level.
