Rotherham, Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 15 January 2013
Recent research by Duport.co.uk shows that during the third quarter of 2012, net company growth in Rotherham stood at 49, compared to 68 during the same period in 2011.
The UK company share of Rotherham also fell during the third quarter, suggesting the South Yorkshire town is still suffering from the effects of the recession.
However, it is hoped that local regeneration projects may help kick start the economy of the area. Already completed is the Dinnington Business Park, which is built on the site of the old Dinnington Colliery. The project provides 40,000 sq m of employment space, as well as a £3.4m incubation centre, which provides high quality office and workshop facilities designed for start-up businesses.
Peter Valaitis, Managing Director of Duport.co.uk said:
“Company formation may be down in Rotherham, but I believe its diverse economy will help it weather the economic storm.”
“Ongoing regeneration of the area will raise its profile and help attract new companies, bringing increased wealth and employment opportunities.”
