Ever since the iron and steel industries put the city on the map in the 18th and 19th centuries, the city has been recognized as one of the UK’s premier locations for business. Following its discovery by Harry Brearley in 1913, Sheffield recently celebrated 100 years of stainless steel. The local Advanced Manufacturing Park also hosts the likes of Boeing, Rolls Royce and Mclaren.
