A record breaking number of new companies in June is fantastic news for Huddersfield and a very encouraging sign for future economic growth.

There have been 104 new companies set up in Huddersfield during June, more than any other June on record. This number also shows an impressive increase on the 89 companies that were set up during the same period in 2011.

The town is currently looking to expand its tourist market with events such as the Food and Drink Festival and the recently launched the Discover Huddersfield campaign, designed to celebrate what is unique about Huddersfield. Keen to maximise tourist trade, the local council have organised a networking event next month to help local businesses learn how they can benefit from tourist trade.

David Thornton, Head of Marketing and Deputy Chief Executive of Visit Peak District & Derbyshire, said:

“We are very much looking forward to meeting businesses in Kirklees and sharing knowledge and information about how we could work together in future to maximise the considerable benefits that tourism brings to the area and the local and regional economy. We have some very exciting campaigns planned over the next three years, and there are great opportunities to get involved.”

Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:

“A record breaking number of new companies in June is fantastic news for Huddersfield and a very encouraging sign for future economic growth. Tourism is good for bringing wealth to an area, and new businesses will benefit from any increase in visitor numbers.”

A growing tourist trade can only serve to strengthen the economy in Huddersfield, which is great news for all the new companies that were set up during June.
