Located 10 km north-east of the centre of Manchester, Oldham is a town synonymous with the Industrial Revolution, as its numerous canals and mill buildings prove. Although outside the M60, it is still an integral part of the city, with many employees living in one and working in the other. In fact, this typical Lancashire town became part of newly formed Greater Manchester in 1974.
Though the mills have now gone, the industrial ethos continues to this day, which is why excellent positions in Oldham and its neighbouring towns of Chadderton, Royton, Shaw and Lees often emerge.
Precision engineering and tech firms have recently sprung up on the Victoria and Moss Lane industrial estates. Many of the mills have now been converted to residential or small business properties, but larger companies such as Medlock Interior, Ribble Packaging and Plastics Direct have made Oldham their home.
As Manchester’s growth as a business centre shows no sign of slowing down, towns in its orbit will continue to be attractive locations thanks to a blend of skilled workforce, excellent communications and relatively inexpensive property prices. The North West as a whole is fast emerging from the post-war slump as more and more businesses see the region as a superb place to base an HQ or regional office.
