The Coalition Government’s Strategic Defence and Security Review calls for greater innovation, radical thinking and smarter collaboration.

With this in mind, the area around Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Stockton, Redcar and Darlington, known as Tees Valley, is a ready-made home for the defence industry of the future.

The area’s significant skills and proven track record of delivering major projects, on time and in a cost-effective way, make Tees Valley an increasingly important player in the future of UK defence and security.

We have created a free, on-line guide for companies involved in the defence and security industry, which demonstrates why Tees Valley is well-placed to offer the right solutions for a challenging future.
