Kent Business e-edition

In this month's Kent Business e-edition

New details emerge about the collapse of Cardy Construction, the contractor which filed for administration last month, putting 220 jobs at risk. One of its directors set up a new company in the building industry nine days before going to court to file a notice of intent to appoint administrators. Meanwhile, many of its other directors have been associated with another business which has been in administration for four years. We also look at the county's reaction to the Brexit vote and examine what confidence was like in the run up to the referendum with Kent Invicta Chamber's Quarterly Economic Survey. Estate agents explain how they are reacting to the growth of online property sellers and a glass maker talks about winning a contract to kit out Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge.
