24 Hour Company, a US based company that assists businesses prepare bid-winning graphics proposals for government and defence contracts, chose Kent as the business location for its first UK office.

Assisted by Locate in Kent, 24 Hour Company moved an office unit at Medway Innovation Centre in Rochester, which will allow it to expand into the UK market and cultivate further growth. The company is looking to recruit locally over the next few years.

Colleen Jolly, Director at 24 Hour Company said: “We are really thrilled to be opening our first office outside America. 24 Hour Company has been successful in the US for the past 17 years and we felt that there was a real opportunity to expand into the UK market.

“We felt that Kent was the ideal business location due to its excellent transport links to London and Europe, which will really help us to deliver our services efficiently. Locate in Kent provided invaluable support and advice, finding the ideal location for the business. We look forward to growing our UK operation and hope to recruit more staff in the future.”
