“Peel continues to work with proactive partners to deliver major investment and regeneration projects in Ellesmere Port. These projects include Pioneer Business Park, Rossfield Park and Ellesmere Quays – part of the longer term transformation of the Town’s Waterfront. We believe that Ellesmere Port has a great future.”

Jasbir Dhesi, Principal and Chief Executive, Cheshire College – South and West

At Cheshire College – South and West, we have had a long and distinguished relationship with Ellesmere Port providing training and Apprenticeships for over 30 years.  Due to the Port’s strong industrial Engineering and Construction industry heritage we made the decision to move our Engineering and Construction departments back to the town operating out of our Ellesmere Port Campus.

This move demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the region’s Engineering and Construction workforce has the skills it needs to ensure future investment and growth.”

Robert Davies, Group CEO

“Our location just south of Ellesmere Port provides us with a great business platform. We have access to a large pool of talented labour, easy transport links and of course a fantastic quality of life being based in Cheshire. Also, as much of our business is now international, being based just 45 minutes from two international airports is a huge advantage.”



“As the owners of the Port Arcades Shopping Centre, we have always felt that it benefits from being at the heart of a thriving local community while having excellent access to wider transport links. The recent £4m extension to the Centre is a reflection of the confidence we have in the future of the town.”


 David Holt, Regatta

“Following an intensive property search we identified Pioneer Point at Ellesmere Port which is close to the Port of Liverpool, a major gateway for goods from Asia. Our site is near to the motorway which gives great access for domestic carriers too. The commissioning stage of our operations in Ellesmere Port is an unquestionable success. We look forward to establishing the site as a centre of excellence for our business.”  


Kenny Murray, Centre Manager, Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks has been trading very successfully from its location in Ellesmere Port for over 22 years. The centre was the UK’s first designer outlet and is also the largest designer outlet in the UK.

The centre’s excellent transport links, which are afforded by its location in Ellesmere Port, ensure accessibility for the eight million guests it welcomes every year and the 2,600 people employed at Cheshire Oaks.

From its opening in 1995 to date, the centre’s growing popularity is underscored by the fact that it has expanded no less than five times. With the £40 million new phase of Cheshire Oaks opening in 2018, the centre continues to grow and strengthen its position as one of Europe’s leading retail and leisure destinations, attracting both national and international tourism to the region.

 “The support that Vauxhall has received from the local community and the highly trained local workforce are just a couple of the many reasons why one of our most efficient plants in Europe is based in Ellesmere Port.”
