More information about Slough

Slough is a town located in the English county of Berkshire, found in the Thames Valley and is located just 22 miles West of London. The town has a rich history, dating back to Roman times and, more recently, is most famously known for its automotive and finance industry connections, and links to motorsport.

The First Automotive-Related Businesses

The automotive industry has a long-standing relationship with the area around Slough, with the area being home to a number of car related businesses. The first automotive related business to open its doors in the area was GKN (previously named Guest, Keen & Nettlefold). The company opened an office in the nearby town of Langley in 1918 and, over the following decades, grew to become a major automotive components provider in the UK. In 1978 the company relocated its press shop and toolroom from London to Slough, and since then, Slough has become a hub for automotive-related businesses.

The Finance Industry in Slough

Indeed, the financial sector is estimated to bring an estimated £1.7 billion to the local economy each year. Beyond banking and investment, Slough is also well known for its hedge fund presence, with Balderton Capital and Lansdowne Partners both based in the area.
