For 25 years, Warwick North West, a Strategic Partner of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, has had a solid commitment to the city’s regeneration. Director Greg Johnson explains…
Once plagued by high unemployment and economic decline, Liverpool has undergone remarkable transformation in recent years, emerging as a thriving city.
Being selected as the European Capital of Culture in 2008 was a pivotal moment in the city’s regeneration journey that attracted international attention and prompted investment in cultural infrastructure such as the Liverpool Museum and Albert Dock.
Urban renewal has also seen the transformation of the Liverpool ONE shopping complex, while most recently, being the official host of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest put the city firmly in the world’s spotlight.
The success of Liverpool’s football clubs have also promoted the city, with the construction of Anfield Stadium and Goodison Park bolstering Liverpool’s’ sporting profile.
But it’s also Liverpool’s commitment to affordable housing that has created growth, and it’s in this sector that Warwick North West has shown its dedication to the city.
For 25 years, we’ve manufactured PVC windows and doors from our Bootle-based site, helping increase employment in the area and even taking on a number of apprentices in order to tackle a growing skills shortage.
We’ve contributed to the area’s development, including working with the Liverpool Council in helping to rescue the iconic Welsh Streets in 2018, providing windows and doors to the now regenerated properties that have created homes for over 300 families.
We also have a commitment to giving back to our community, and have partnered with children’s charity Ykids and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in an effort to help better the lives of vulnerable children.
Through leadership, strategic planning, and collaboration between public and private sectors, Liverpool has transformed into a vibrant economic hub.
At Warwick North West, we’re proud to play our part in the city’s regeneration journey, and looking ahead, we have a commitment to continual investment through housing development, job creation, and charity, helping to build a bright future for Liverpool.
