Economy and Industry in Essex

Industry is largely limited to the south of the county, with the majority of the land elsewhere being given over to agriculture. Harlow is a centre for electronics, science and pharmaceutical companies, while Chelmsford is the home of a British telecommunictaions and engineering company. Basildon is home to an Agriculture Company’s European headquarters and Brentwood home to a Motor Company’s British headquarters. Debden near Loughton is home to a production facility for British and foreign banknotes.

Chelmsford, which has been an important location for electronics companies since the industry was born, is also the location for a number of insurance and financial services organisations, and is the home of a soft drinks provider. Othe businesses in the county are dominated by mechanical engineering including but not limited to metalworking, glassmaking and plastics as well as the service sector. Colchester is a garrison town, and the local economy is helped by the Army’s personnel living there.
