The unusually-named town of Crewe is located towards the south-east of Cheshire - close to other towns such as Nantwich, Sandbach and Congleton. Almost synonymous with the Railway Industry in British culture, this page lists recruitment agencies in and around Crewe - as well as discussing a little about the local area.
Crewe's local economy
The town of Crewe grew up around the major railway junction which was established in the area in the 19th Century. Although its presence is diminished nowadays, the Crewe Railway Works still stands, and is largely focused on the repair of damaged railway stock.
Other major employers in the area include Bentley, which has its sole factory in Crewe at Pyms Lane, and BAE Systems, which has an armaments factory in the nearby village of Radway Green. Air Products, Barclays Bank, EMaC, and Fujitsu Services all employ considerable numbers of people on sites at the Crewe Business Park, and Manchester Metropolitan University's Cheshire Campus is also based in Crewe.
Transport links in Crewe
As mentioned previously, Crewe was formed around a major railway junction - and as such, it is well-served for train travel. Sitting as it does between junctions 16 and 17 of the M6 motorway, Crewe is also well-placed for inter-city travel by road vehicle - the route giving easy access to the large cities of the North-West and West Midlands.
