  • UK headquarters and national operations of British household names such as KPMG, Wickes, JD Wetherspoon, Majestic Wine and Camelot
  • UK and European headquarters of significant foreign businesses such as TJX Europe, Beko, HCL, Hilton, Ralph Lauren and Costco

 

  • 28 of Hertfordshire’s top 200 businesses are based in Watford (Hertfordshire Ltd 2017, Grant Thornton)
  • GVA growth over the 10-year and 5-year period to 2015 was the highest in Hertfordshire (Hertfordshire Economic Outlook 2018, Hertfordshire LEP)
  • A top 20% local authority nationally for prosperity (Vibrant Economy Index 2018, Grant Thornton)
