The newest of the Royal Navys ships are equipped with radar from here, current and future generations of aircraft have components built here, some of the most popular computer games are designed here, and our marine and manufacturing sectors enjoy a fantastic global reputation.

The simple, consistent message is that we are here to ensure the sustainable economic development of the Isle of Wight.
As a not for profit organisation, we still operate as a commercial enterprise, but use any surplus for the promotion and economic development of the Island.
