The business collections predominantly have a Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire focus. The local heritage of lace-making, hosiery and textiles is well represented. See also related material in the Trade Union and Trade Associations category.

The collections also include records of some engineering businesses, collieries and coal mining companies. There are a number of farming and rural records in a discrete group received from the University of Nottingham's School of Agriculture at Sutton Bonington.

The University also holds the records of numerous local electricity companies dating from before their nationalisation into the East Midlands Electricity Board in 1948.
