This is Tameside

The Municipal Borough of Tameside lies approximately eight miles to the East of Manchester and with its impressive backdrop of spectacular Pennine countryside it is one of the North West of England’s most attractive regions to live … to work … and to invest in business growth and development.

Both the M60 and M67 motorways run through the borough and it is also an integral part of the expanding Manchester Metrolink network. In addition there are a number of rail stations located on the main Trans-Pennine route, which has links directly into Manchester International Airport. Thanks to these most comprehensive transport facilities, Tameside is supremely accessible from the North, South, East and West for residents and visitors alike and it is a natural hub for a multi-skilled local and outlying workforce.

Within the borough of Tameside there are six separate towns, each with its own unique heritage and character. Individually and together they offer the most amazing choice of retail, residential and recreational facilities. With an enterprising council, attractive funding opportunities, site availability and a readily available workforce, Tameside also offers exceptional re-location and development opportunities for new and established businesses of all sizes and types.
