Economy and Industry in Somerset

Somerset has few industrial centres, but it does have a variety of light industry and high technology businesses, along with traditional agriculture. Helicopters are manufactured and aircraft oxygen systems are built in Yeovil. Many town have encouraged small-scale light industries, such as one of the UK’s smallest car manufacturers.

Bridgwater was developed during the Industrial Revolution as the area’s leading port. Int eh 19th and 20th centuries, it was a centre for the manufacture of bricks and clay roof tiles, and later cellophane, but those industries have now stopped. With its good links to the motorway system, Bridgwater has developed as a distribution hub for some large companies. Agriculture and food and drink production continue to be major industries in the county.
