Eastleigh is a popular location for businesses of all shapes and sizes, not least because of the area’s excellent transport links.

We are already home to the head offices of some big national and international companies, as well as being a regional base for others. Around 60,000 people are employed in more than 5,000 businesses in the borough.  Low unemployment (1.4%), excellent schools and an active workforce mean that Eastleigh has a prosperous economy.

Some of the large national organisations already based in or operating from Eastleigh: 

  • GE Aviation 
  • Coopervision
  • Wickes
  • Draper Tools
  • Norwich Union Health Care
  • Flybe
  • B&Q
  • AGEAS insurance

Along with the above companies we are also home to some big out of town developments, including Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury’s and a host of other national names you’d expect in a vibrant town. In 2014, the borough will see the completion of the country’s biggest, purpose built NEXT home and garden store.
