The North West of the United Kingdom has long been associated with industry and innovation, especially in terms of the car industry, finance industry and motorsport. The small town of Colne in Lancashire has been part of its rich history of progress as it has developed into an up-and-coming hub of automotive technology, financial provision, and — more recently — a growing motorsport scene.
Colne has grown over the years, but it still retains its traditional values of hard work and entrepreneurial spirit that has always been a backbone of the local area. It is situated at the entrance to the Pennines, a region of England that has seen a resurgence of car manufacturing, automotive engineering clusters and technology parks — all of which have attracted significant investment over the years.
The town has a population of around 26,000 people, many of whom work in the local car industry. The borough of Pendle, of which Colne is part, is home to two major automotive facilities — the British Motor Heritage Toyota manufacturing plant and the BMW Mini plant. This has brought hundreds of jobs to the local area as well as making it an attractive prospect for automotive businesses looking to invest in the region.
The Nissan plant in nearby Sunderland is also closely linked with Colne, with some local businesses providing parts and services for the factory. This has created further employment opportunities in the area, especially for those with experience in engineering and automotive design.
The car industry has further been supported by the presence of the finance industry in the town. There are several banks based in the town, including the Bank of England, which helps to finance the manufacturing industry. The town is also home to a number of accountancy firms, as well as a growing number of mortgage and loan brokers who provide services and support to residents of Colne and the surrounding areas.
Motorsport has become increasingly popular in Colne in recent years, thanks to the emergence of a number of go-karting circuits, rally and off-road driving tracks, as well as drag racing strips. The town also saw the establishment of the Pendle Raceway, a fully-fledged racing track located on the outskirts of the borough, which has been host to a number of international and national racing events over the last few years.
The popularity of motorsport in the area has increased further due to the presence of an engineering-based motorsport cluster, which has enabled those passionate about the sport to pursue their interest with the necessary parts and services available locally. Local businesses have been quick to capitalise on this, with many automotive and engineering companies offering racing related services, as well as a range of race car parts and components, helping to increase employment in the area.
The automotive and finance industries continue to be major employers in Colne, with the state-of-the-art Toyota and BMW plants bringing in new jobs and opportunities for those interested in engineering, design and other related trades. The emergence of the motorsport cluster and the boosting of racing events by the presence of the Pendle Raceway have provided further employment opportunities as well as enabling motorsport enthusiasts to engage in their passion at a local level.
In summary, Colne has become an exciting and thriving hub for car manufacturing, finance and motorsport, with new investment providing local employment opportunities and a vibrant atmosphere that brings together the traditional industry with the industry of the future.
