Commercial Review - February 2011

Welcome to the first edition of the Lancaster and Morecambe Commercial Review, a monthly e-magazine publication covering all aspects of the district’s economy.

We all want to see a return to growth in 2011 after several years of tough trading for many businesses.

At Lancaster & Morecambe Newspapers, we hope we can do our bit encourage this by highlighting local success stories and identifying opportunities for companies to do more business with each other.

To that end, we are publishing in this issue the first ever list of the Top 30 companies, ranked by turnover, in Lancaster and Morecambe.

It reveals some remarkable success stories from companies whose track record demonstrates how good this area really is as a business location.

We also focus on the likely impact of the proposed M6 link road, especially on the port-related businesses around Heysham.

Retail and hotel/leisure are two other sectors which come under the microscope as the district seeks to trade on its heritage and natural beauty to pull in more visitors along with their spending power.

We hope you will want your business to feature in these pages in the months ahead. Within the e-magazine you will find a guide to some ways you can get a mention.
