Services for Exporters
Priority sectors for Plymouth and the South West peninsula are advanced manufacturing, particularly but not exclusively the marine sector; medical and health and tourism and leisure. The food and drink sector is growing in importance linked to the excellent local produce sourced on the peninsula and the traditionally important fishing industry.
As well as a range of innovative small businesses, major employers such as Princess Yachts, Babcock Marine Ltd and Kawaski are based in Devon. In addition, the medical and health sector is growing in importance through links between Plymouth University and its medical and dental school, and Derriford Hospital, one of the largest in the country which is a centre for teaching and research. Numerous spin-off businesses are emerging within this sector.
