Leading companies and organisations located in Newport include:

SPTS Technologies

We have been based in Newport for over 20 years, and the city provides excellent transport links, which is essential as we export over 95% of our products. Home to a number of large and small high tech manufacturing companies, the region also provides a highly skilled workforce with appropriate experience for our requirements. As one of the largest employers in Newport, we are pleased with the on-going city centre regeneration which is so important for our local employees but also when overseas customers come to visit us.

Ministry of Justice Shared Services

We chose Celtic Springs, Newport after a thorough and robust selection process. Our criteria included good transport links, the quality of the building itself and the ability to attract the right quality of workforce – Celtic Springs ticked all those boxes. We were delighted with both the quantity and quality of response throughout the interview process.

Halo Foods

One of the key factors to our success in staying at the top of a very competitive market is our workforce. More than anything this industry needs a pool of dedicated employees that also demonstrate a willingness to adapt to new working patterns. This can be a difficult combination to find, but our employees are the basis of our success. Another factor is the location, and from Newport the links to the M4 motorway are superb, which helps us to make on-time deliveries of food products to our customers.

Robin Williams, Head of Human Resources


Wilkinson has a deep appreciation for the value of good human relationships at work and Wales has not disappointed. Since we opened our distribution centre at Magor, Newport, we have found an unrivalled enthusiasm amongst our workforce and customers which promises well for the future.

Our 850,000 sq ft distribution centre is ideally located to serve not only Wales but also the south and south west of England. 

Simon Lowe, Manager Wilkinson Hardware Stores Distribution Centre
