Orpington: The third quarter of the year saw a drop in net company growth in Orpington, according to data in the latest Duport Business Confidence Report.
Between July and September, the company register increased by 55, compared to 77 during the same period in 2011.
New company formation and UK company share also fell during the third quarter, suggesting that the area is still feeling the effects of the recession.
However, the report also shows that the percentage of female director appointments and young director appointments rose during the third quarter of the year.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“Like the rest of the country, Orpington is suffering from the effects of the economic downturn, with company registrations falling and closures increasing.”
“However, the rising number of young directors and female directors seen in Q3 should help revitalise the local economy with fresh ideas and new business innovations.”
