Thames:UK (PRWEB UK) 18 August 2012 -- After playing host to the Olympic Road Race, you’d have thought this summer couldn’t get much better for Kingston-upon-Thames. But figures have emerged showing a record-breaking second quarter of the year for the town, with more new companies set up than any other Q2 on record. The previous record was set in Q2 of 2009, when 220 new companies were formed.
Kingston is thriving town that has remained prosperous in the face of tough economic conditions. It has a healthy property market, excellent shopping centre and great transport links – all factors that have led to it being voted one of the top ten places to live in London.
Since its inception in 2004, the Kingston Business Improvement District (BID) has worked to develop the town centre in a number of ways. Amongst other achievements, the BID has been responsible for an increase of 2.45 million additional customers a year, and has increased standards in cleansing and security, including a reduction of over 38% in violent crime.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“The record quarter for number of new companies in Kingston comes as no surprise. The town has a thriving town centre and easy access to central London, making it an ideal place for new business to grow and develop.”
Kingston is a town with everything going for it, and the record quarter it has just seen promises many more years of prosperity to come.
