Solihull is one of the strongest performing economies in the centre of the UK and offers a world class, connected location to live, work and invest in.
It is ranked among the top 10 UK locations for business and continues to be a thriving hub - rich in skills, talent, opportunity, commercial potential, and ambitious net zero aims. Our local economy is strong and will only be enhanced by developments such as the Arden Cross Interchange and the continued success of our leading businesses, including the NEC, Birmingham Airport and Gymshark.
HS2 will also establish us as a major gateway to the region and, with greater connectivity to the capital, will open the door for Solihull’s businesses to showcase their offering.
Our increasing employment rate signifies growth across all groups and our borough continues to boast a higher job density than the regional average.
Thanks to the various educational institutions across Solihull our future workforce is flourishing, and our young people are working to maintain our ranking as the highest educated area within the West Midlands Combined Authority as well as excelling in the provision of apprenticeships accounting for 8.5 per cent of the West Midlands total.
Despite the challenges created by the pandemic Solihull have maintained a positive economic output, seeing the start of 960 new businesses and with 43 per cent of SMEs started in 2015 surviving into the pandemic.

'As an established business moving into the area in 2016, joining the Solihull Chamber was one of the best decisions we made at that time. The Solihull Chamber has opened lots of doors for Leap IT and we have built a large network of business in and around Solihull that we otherwise wouldn’t of known about.'
'The Chamber has been enormously beneficial to us over the years, not least during the challenging times of Brexit and the covid pandemic. We found them to be one of the most reliable sources of information for navigating the Brexit process and their training courses were excellent. The Chamber also introduced our company to the GBSLEP Growth Hub, which played a pivotal role in our company being able to expand rapidly. An affiliation with the Chamber is something that every company should consider as a vital tool for their business.'
'Glide were proud to have been headline sponsors of the Solihull Chamber Annual Awards 2021 and being a finalist ourselves. We foresee huge growth across the region at a time where businesses are leaning towards convenience and technological capabilities by utilising great broadband and data connectivity more than ever! We look forward to getting together with leaders across the region through our 1813 membership with the chamber and paving the way for sustainable growth and supporting businesses in our region. It is great to make valuable business connections through all the regular chamber events.'
