    The industrial revolution cemented the Midlands’ reputation as a hub of engineering excellence and expertise, leading the way in producing coal, iron, steel and ceramics.   More than a century later the region remains a prime centre of UK manufacturing expertise.  Accounting for more than a quarter of the country’s engineering employment and around 30 per cent of UK car production the region is home to major groups like Jaguar Land Rover, Toyota, JCB and Caterpillar.
