With £1 billion of investment opportunities underway, Chesterfield’s investment potential has been brought to life in a brand new series of films produced by Destination Chesterfield.
The series of films have been created to showcase the benefits of investing in Chesterfield.
They feature a number of businesses from the leisure and retail, manufacturing and logistics sectors, highlighting the key benefits of basing businesses in the Borough.
Ferdinand Bilstein, Northern Tea Merchants, United Cast Bars Ltd, Bottle and Thyme, and MSE Hiller are amongst a number of businesses featured in the films, highlighting the benefits of Chesterfield’s connectivity, productivity, lifestyle, proximity to the Peak District and skills and education offer.
The films, which have all been created by local film and production company Defeye Creative, have been commissioned by Destination Chesterfield, the town’s inward investment campaign.
Dominic Stevens, Destination Chesterfield Manager explained: “Chesterfield’s GVA has grown by 28% in the last five years outperforming South Yorkshire, East Midlands and England. These are facts that cannot be taken lightly by businesses looking to grow and invest.
“We have the commercial property, transport links and networks to support businesses and nowhere is this better evidenced that with the businesses that are established in Chesterfield, which is why it was important to showcase them in the films.”
Delighted to take part in the film James Pogson, Director of Chatsworth Road based retailer and manufacturer Northern Tea Merchants said: “Our business has its roots in Chesterfield and has been established here for nearly 70 years. It is an excellent location for us and the transport links have enabled us to grow and develop partnerships with national retailers and take the business from a local tea distributor to a national retailer and manufacturer.”
Dominic added: “The investment potential of Chesterfield is immense. Already we have the UK’s largest leisure development at Peak Resort, one of the largest regeneration projects at Chesterfield Waterside and an HS2 station in planning which will deliver a huge range of opportunities for people to live, work and invest here both now and in the future.”
