Derby is now leading the UK’s economic recovery!

All eyes are on Derby as new figures, released this week, confirm that the city is now leading the UK’s economic recovery. Derby has seen a 23% growth in GVA over the past 5 years – that’s more than double the national average of 9%.

With more than 160 stores, intu Derby is at the heart of the city.

With more than 160 stores, intu Derby is a main shopping hub.

The city’s GVA now stands at £27,849, against a national average of £20,899. The impressive numbers have attracted a lot of national media attention, with the Daily Mail describing Derby as being the ‘centre of the UK recovery’.

John Forkin, MD of Marketing Derby says: “Derby punches above its weight and these numbers reinforce our message of an economy based on excellence in innovation and advanced engineering. We have fantastic companies and a talented workforce and I believe that developments such as Infinity Park Derby and the Derby UTC (University Technical College), both of which open later this year, will raise our game further.” 

At Blueprint Document Solutions, we are thrilled to hear this great news & look forward to a bright and prosperous future for our great city!
