“Croydon seemed to be an interesting, up-and-coming area with lots of construction and regeneration work going on. It also has terrific transport links, which is important as we do a lot of business in the City”
“We are all really thrilled to be here. We’ve got very nice office space and it’s ideally located for East Croydon station – and also for the Whitgift Shopping Centre, which has been approved for a massive new, modern retail project that will draw consumers from further afield and enhance the ‘Croydon experience’.
“ We were looking for value and convenience when choosing our office space and the combination of Croydon’s location and the incentive for huge savings through the Business Rates Relief Scheme made that decision all the more obvious.
