Downton was recently named as one of the top 100 businesses in Gloucestershire by a leading local magazine. At number 17 on the list, Downton is one of just 23 businesses based in the county with a turnover of more than £100 million. On top of this we employ hundreds of people at our head office in Moreton Valance and warehouses in the county as well as at our other sites around the country.
We are in good company. Alongside Downton on the list are dozens of successful companies that, like us, have chosen to base and grow their business in the county. Their investment, like ours, provides vital employment and helps to support the wider local economy. Many of these business have apprenticeship programmes that, as with Downton’s, provide excellent opportunities for the next generation of employees and wealth creators.
The list shows that there is real diversity in the businesses operating in the county – in addition to transport, manufacturing, engineering, advanced technology, agriculture, financial services and many more sectors are represented.
