Also, major local employers such as Babcock Marine with its three hundred year heritage of ship building and ship repair at the dockyard in Devonport.

Collectively, the PMG membership employs over twelve thousand staff in the Plymouth travel-to-work-area and has a combined turnover of approx. £1.6bn. Despite its decline in recent years, manufacturing remains an important part of the UK and Plymouth economies. Plymouth has the greatest proportion of manufacturing and engineering jobs of any large city in England, south of the Midlands.The total gross value added (or ‘GVA’) of Plymouth’s manufacturing sector was updated in 2014 to reveal it was worth £718m in 2011. That eclipses the previous high of £705m in 2001. Plymouth’s manufacturing sector is worth more (in terms of GVA) than either the whole of the same sector in Cornwall (£644m) or even, perhaps surprisingly, its larger regional neighbour Bristol (£654m). The GVA for Plymouth’s total economy is worth just a smidgen over £4.5bn. That means that manufacturing accounts for almost 16% of the whole economy.
