"Dancor has enjoyed the entire development and construction experience in the City of London and has plans to develop and build in the City for many years to come. London is a great City and has a wonderful business atmosphere. This amazing accomplishment of completing this new building in just 168 days is the result of many great partnerships. First and foremost, the LEDC made it possible for Dancor to see the amazing opportunities London has to offer. The City of London staff, each and every department, made sure that we could start building as soon as possible in order to meet the very tight schedule."
One of London’s greatest strengths is the diversity of its business community. This has served us well over the years during cyclical downturns in certain sectors and it also provides a strong base from which to expand.
London’s largest sector is the manufacturing industry, employing over 38,000 people, or 16% of the overall workforce. The chart below shows the full breakdown of employment by industry category.
The LEDC continues to aggressively pursue the sectors that have been the foundation of London’s economy in the past, including the automotive parts and food processing industries, and is also dedicated to the growing areas of information technology and life sciences.
