Entity Group Expand at Kent Science Park


Information management software and solutions specialists Entity Group has taken on eight new employees to help manage its ever-increasing workload.

The enterprise data management solutions provider has also increased its Kent Science Park headquarters by a third after leasing an extra 1,100 sq ft of office space.

Entity Group Ltd CEO Chris Finlay said the additional employees and space were needed to meet increased demand from the company’s customers in both the UK and overseas.

“Our headcount is growing in line with our major expansion plans enhancing our capabilities to deliver comprehensive solutions assisting corporate customers to capitalise on the existing data within their businesses. To cope with demand we have had to add technical, consulting and project management headcount to our business,” he said.

“We have expanded the business by eight people so far but have plans to grow further as our project pipeline currently stands at £1.7 million but is increasing rapidly. While the general economy is still troubled, in our chosen disciplines of information management -data integration, master data management, data warehousing and custom analytics – we are finding strong demand from finance, insurance, education, Government and healthcare organisations in the UK and abroad in countries such as the Netherlands and Belgium and even Abu Dhabi and South Aftrica.”

Entity’s expansion is yet another Kent Science Park success story, with the Sittingbourne site able to provide companies with all the tools they need to thrive in their chosen fields and the room to expand its office as and when required.

Kent Science Park site director James Speck said: “Entity Group’s expansion is typical of what we are seeing across the Park”.

“Many of the 60 businesses on site are looking to add to the combined skilled workforce, which currently stands at 1,200, and we are assisting them in providing all the additional space they require.”

Chris Finlay added: “Kent Science Park is ideal for a business such as ours, allowing us to grow our offices as we progress our expansion plans.

“Despite our more recent growth we are still a relatively small company, but with the facilities and services of a major organisation.”
