Redcar: Combining Car Industry, Financial Sector and Motorsport
Located at the mouth of the River Tees in North Yorkshire, the seaside town of Redcar has a long history of association with industry. With generous docks and access to the sea, the area has become a hub for all sorts of commercial activity. Beyond the traditional fishing and shipping industries, the area has developed to incorporate the mighty car industry, a thriving financial sector, and an exciting presence in motorsport circles.
Positioned 30 miles south of the City of York and 15 miles north of Middlesbrough, Redcar is a town that sits proudly between the North York Moors and the North Sea. In 2018 it had a population of 37,420, and in 2019 it had a major attendance at the Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council elections, highlighting the enthusiastic culture that the area is known for.
The car industry in Redcar has gained traction since the early 1900s and has produced a famous wave of international brands. Early on, the area was home to the Redcar Cotton and Silk Co. which had a functional motor department that made the first motor cars in the United Kingdom — a Realcar. Later, the famed Triumph Motor Company stretched its manufacturing wings to Redcar, producing top-of-the-range models such as the Herald, the Vitesse and the and the two-seater Spitfire. These vehicles were all built at the Redcar Triumph factory until the late 1980s.
Additionally, during more recent times, the area has also seen the birth of the famous Nissan car plant. The brand has invested in a large plant that produces around 100,000 cars per year, with almost 2,000 employees, contributing a great deal to the local economy. A further 1,500 people are employed by the company's Sunderland office, which is located less than 20 miles away from Redcar. Nissan's presence in the area has generated other related businesses, such as companies which assemble car components.
The automotive industry also has a strong presence in the surrounding area, which includes companies producing car parts and accessories, such as Redcar industries and the number of automotive retailers that surround the outskirts of the town.
In addition to cars and car production, Redcar is home to a financial sector that has been providing excellent services to the local and greater community for many years. This includes the likes of the Redcar Credit Union, Redcar Building Society, and Redcar & Cleveland Urban Regeneration Company. These organisations aim to create a thriving and resilient economy.
The Financial Services Centre, Redcar, is an organisation devoted to offering financial advice and services for businesses and individuals alike. They provide a range of services that allow individuals to access financial advice, plan their finances and even seek out loan deals. This is a respected organisation that is integral to the economic success of the town.
Motorsport has also become an important cultural component of the town. The Redcar Speedway holds events throughout the year, including a packed programme from April to August that sees riders from around the region competing against each other for prized wins.
Meanwhile the Redcar Rockets, formed a year before the local speedway, compete in the National League and offer riders the opportunity to take part in matches across the UK. The aim of the team is to give riders with potential the opportunity to join a club and acquire the experience they need to progress up the speedway ladder.
In addition to these events, the local Redcar Scouts organisation also arranges a variety of events and end of year awards, where the children get together to race and celebrate their achievements against the opposition.
The town of Redcar is a vibrant and diverse town that has something for everyone. Whether you are driven by the exciting car industry, the reliable financial sector, or the thrilling motorsport scene, you will find something to get excited about. In addition to the industries mentioned, Redcar also hosts galleries and museums, beautiful beaches and plenty of outdoor activities, so make sure you consider a visit to Redcar when you plan your next North Yorkshire holiday.
