Northampton, Northamptonshire (PRWEB UK) 21 March 2013
A new report from company formation specialists Duport.co.uk reveals that the UK company share of Northampton rose to a record level last year, leaping from 0.4% in 2011 to 0.6% in 2012.
Not only did the town experience its highest ever UK company share, limited company registrations also climbed to a record level. There were 2720 new company formations over the course of the year - more than any other year in the history of the town and a 49% rise on the previous year.
Ongoing regeneration of the area could be behind the positive statistics seen in the Duport report.

Current projects include the transformation of several brownfield sites into new office buildings and the redevelopment of the railway station.
