Perth has always played a significant role in growing GVA in Scotland and as we move into a new age in industry, the area has committed to supporting those businesses who are focused on sustainability and innovation.
Building on our long-term strengths in the Food & Drink and Tourism Sectors, the area is fast becoming synonymous with developments in agritech and eco-tourism, as well as extending opportunities for innovation in the insurance and finance sectors.
Commercial property and land developments in Perth are priced to be highly competitive in the Scottish marketplace – commercial rental on average is lower than its Edinburgh based equivalent, only an hour away.
This presents real-term cost-efficiencies, particularly for large scale industry and manufacturing, and for corporate headquarter growth, which has led to industry leaders such as Stagecoach, Highland Spring and SSE all choosing to conduct their national and international trade from head offices in Perth and the wider region.
If you are looking for an ambitious, vibrant city in which to set up a sustainable, innovative company, a base for a UK or European head quarters, or if you want to seize the opportunities on offer the low carbon, agritech and financial sectors, then Perth is your way forward.
