The Leatherhead Kingston Road Centre is strategically located within a short drive of the town centre. The stylish, modern brick and glass building is situated in a business park favoured by small and medium sized businesses. In the past decades, Leatherhead's business community has grown dramatically. As well as becoming a hub for smaller enterprises, entrepreneurs and sole traders, the town has also become a magnet for multinational companies who have expanded here or relocated their headquarters. Several hi-tech companies are located nearby as well as those involved in research and food manufacture. High spec racing car manufacture is the latest industry to locate to the town. The influx of affluent professionals and the buoyant local economy has led to great shopping, first-class restaurants and up-market products and services in the town.
