Sussex is home to several world-renowned businesses. The proximity to London and exceptional higher education establishments at the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex, provide a talented workforce.
Rolls-Royce: One of the most iconic luxury car manufacturers in the world, Rolls-Royce's origins come back to Sussex. The current production and global headquarters of the famous brand are at Goodwood. The company was founded in 1904 by Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. Charles Rolls was born in Hillbrow, near Petersfield in West Sussex, and later established a partnership with Henry Royce, who was based in Manchester. The first Rolls-Royce car, the Silver Ghost, gained a reputation for its unparalleled engineering and craftsmanship, setting the standard for luxury automobiles.
Virgin Atlantic: Owned by the famed entrepreneur, Richard Branson, Virgin Atlantic’s headquarters are based in Crawley. Affectionately known as VHQ, Crawley is beneficial for many reasons, but most importantly its proximity to London Gatwick Airport. The office is also the head office for Virgin Holidays.
Harvey's Brewery: Founded in 1790 in Lewes, Harvey's Brewery is one of the oldest independent breweries in Sussex. It has a rich history of brewing traditional ales and has earned a reputation for producing high-quality beers. Harvey's Brewery remains a cherished institution in Lewes and beyond, attracting beer enthusiasts and visitors to its renowned pubs.
Goodwood Group: Goodwood, near Chichester, is a well-known estate that hosts various world-class events, including the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival. These events celebrate classic and vintage cars, motorsports, and aviation. The Goodwood Group has established itself as a prestigious brand associated with luxury, motorsport, and heritage.
Brighton Gin: Brighton Gin is a locally-produced artisan gin that has gained popularity not only in Sussex but also across the UK and internationally. Distilled in Brighton, this award-winning gin is known for its distinctive flavour, inspired by the botanicals found in the South Downs National Park.
