The city of Lincoln is a cathedral city and county town of Lincolnshire in the East Midland of England. Its early industry was in war production. The first tanks were invented in Lincoln and they also produced an array of war goods such as aircrafts, munitions, and military vehicles.

Today, Lincoln's second largest private employer is James Dawson and Son which is a belting and hose manufacturer. Significant development was seen in the Brayford Area due to the large employment rate in building gas turbines. The main economy is based on public administration, commerce, and tourism.


Education is another major industry in Lincoln. It is home to two universities, namel the Bishop Grosseteste University and the larger University of Lincoln. In addition to the universities, further education is provided by Lincoln College which is Lincolnshire's largest education institution specializing in music, media, and game design. This makes Lincoln an ideal location to bring Pitman Training Centres as the market for adult education and training is significant.
