Warehouses and manufacturing in Southampton

Particularly noted for its association with the RMS Titanic and the Spitfire, Southampton is also one of the country’s major ports, being home to some of the world’s largest cruise ships. The city is also known for its particularly vast shopping centre and retail park, Westquay.

From 2000 to 2012, Southampton’s economy has boomed, mostly in sectors such as business, construction and finance. Although the distribution industry in the city was worth a considerable £849m in 2012, it was worth £1,088m in 2000, marking a dramatic fall in its overall worth.

However, the construction and manufacturing industry saw a £57m increase between 2000 and 2012, with an increase in job opportunities and numerous projects being the cause of the financial boom within the sector.
