Rugeley: Staffordshire town, Rugeley has experienced a record second quarter in terms of new companies being set up. There have been 59 new companies set up, more than any other second quarter on record for the area. The previous second quarter record of 54 was set before the recession hit in 2007.

A recent announcement that Amazon will create 900 jobs in the area has provided an extra boost to the town’s economy. The company will start operations in its 700,000 square foot warehouse later this month.

Redevelopment of the area is also in the pipeline, with the council currently consulting on a plan to stimulate business in the town centre. The aim of the plan is to boost the shopping provision in the town, improve accessibility, provide more high quality housing and set up cultural and leisure activities for residents and visitors.

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

“Plans for Rugeley town centre will almost certainly stimulate the economy of the area. Business start-ups are clearly locating here due to the promise of economic growth and increased footfall in Rugeley.”

This Staffordshire market town may look unassuming from the outside, but with the presence of huge companies like Amazon and an ambitious plan for the future, the sky is the limit for new businesses choosing to set up here.
