Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce has been in existence in some form since 1813. It was borne out of a desire from businesses to join together to represent common interests, to meet, to trade and to grow. To this day it continues to represent the interests of businesses in Staffordshire, to support them in growth and prosperity and to be their voice in the political sphere.
