Walsall, the administrative centre of the Metropolitan Borough of Walsall, is a large market town of approximately 73,000 people. Like many towns in the West Midlands, Walsall boasts a rich industrial heritage. Once the location of several coal mines and metal working factories, it’s now best known for its leather goods, particularly its saddles. Several types of luxury leather goods are exported from the area, and its saddles are world-renowned. Other notable sectors that are driving the local economy include electronics, chemicals, and aircraft parts.
Along with Wolverhampton and Dudley, Walsall is part of the Black Country Enterprise Zone. Swathes of land strategically located near the M6 motorway provide exciting industrial opportunities for businesses and developers. A new push for upskilling has seen training initiatives rise in recent years, with a focus on equipping workers with the skills needed for the jobs of the future. Among the programmes are training hubs for maintaining and repairing electric vehicles and a digital innovation hub, both in partnership with Walsall College.
