Of the many towns on the M1 corridor claiming to have a central location, Northampton can also claim a number of additional unique advantages which may explain why so many major companies have chosen to base their headquarters in the town. Northampton is an attractive market town advantageously located at the crossroads of central England. The town?s excellent communications and extensive range of facilities make it the perfect choice for relocation and inward investment. Northampton has developed into an important regional business centre for many of Britain?s top companies, due largely to its unbeatable geographical location. In recent years over 200 companies, including 70 from overseas have moved into the town. National Panasonic and Wells Soft Drinks have chosen the town to relocate to and those that have recently relocated within Northampton are Barclays Head Office and Levi Strauss. Those companies who chose to located in the town during its development years are Avon Cosmetics, Carlsberg-Tetley and British Timken. Others that have joined them are Coca Cola Schweppes, MFI, Scholl, Tesco, Black and Decker, Nationwide Building Society and many others. Northampton is one of the ten fastest growing towns in the country and is amongst the top twenty choice locations for Managing Directors wishing to relocate their business. The town offers easy access to the rest of the UK; 57% of the UK?s population and 50% of production are located within 100 miles of the town. Northampton is equidistant from London and Birmingham, and is on the M1, the major road link from London to the North. There is easy access to the M5, M6, M25 and M40, providing good motorway links in all directions. Northampton is on other strategic routes such as the A43 to Oxford and Southampton and the A45 to the East Coast and East Anglia.
