Why Protos?

Protos is the destination of choice for energy, innovation and industry. Boasting unrivalled connections to some of the region’s biggest industrial forces, Protos can be a powerful strategic energy hub at the core of the Northern Powerhouse.

Set on the south bank of the Manchester Ship Canal in the North West of England, the 54ha site is ideally placed to become an industrial micro-climate, with enviable transport links providing access to UK and International markets and surrounding industrial heartland.

With full outline consent and part detailed consent; the first confirmed tenants; and infrastructure works underway – the time is now for Protos.

Delivering the vision

Protos is being developed by Peel Environmental, a subsidiary of the Peel Group, one of Britain’s leading infrastructure, transport and real estate companies. Building on our track record of delivering genuine regeneration, we are committed to unlocking the potential of the surrounding area.

Creating a cluster of complementary businesses at Protos can provide increased access to energy; skills; support and resources; and a co-located supply chain.

We see Protos being transformational for the region’s employment market, with the ability to create some 3,000 jobs. We are bringing forward Protos in collaboration with the University of Chester, who’s neighbouring Thornton Science Park offers direct access to a highly-skilled and futureproof workforce, as well as state-of-the-art facilities.
