Businesses/companies in Carlisle
A rural county close to two of the UK’s most beautiful natural landscapes – the Lake District and the Pennines – much of Cumbria’s economy is geared towards tourism, hospitality and outdoor pursuits. But Carlisle, and the wider county does have some interesting businesses operating in the burgeoning manufacturing industry – boosted by a long term initiative to establish an ‘Energy Hub’ in West Cumbria.
