A Seaham-based company, who came to the county last year as part of expansion plans from their Hull base, are now looking to expand their workforce even further thanks to recent success.
ResQ, a customer contact company, has just moved into a second wing of their building on the Spectrum Business Park in Seaham.
The company has recently created 300 jobs and are well on their way to their goal of creating 1200 jobs in Seaham – a target that will make them the largest inward investment in the county in recent times.
This latest office space was officially opened yesterday (Tuesday 21 March) by Cllr Edward Bell, Chairman of Durham County Council and elected member for Seaham. He said: “As someone who was born and bred in Seaham, I am delighted to see more jobs being created here and a company like ResQ thriving in the supportive environment that is offered by Durham County Council, through our work with Business Durham.
Business Durham is the economic development company for the county, working on behalf of the authority. They helped secure funding for ResQ and worked with them to find the best site for their needs when they were looking to relocate to the county.
ResQ CEO Nic Marshall said: “Spectrum Business Park and County Durham as a whole offered us the quality of premises we needed for this key expansion of our business, with access to a large, high quality workforce, which was critical in our decision-making process.
“We are delighted at the growth we have experienced since setting up here and we look forward to expanding even further in the future.”
