An insurance firm is believed to have signed the biggest office deal in Kent in the last 18 months.
Covéa Insurance, part of a Paris-based mutual insurance group, clinched the deal when it renewed its lease on offices in Kings Hill.
The company moved into the whole of the 52,000sq ft three storey building on the business park 13 years ago, where it employs more than 400 people.
Caroline Binns, of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust, said: "Covéa Insurance is one of the larger employers in Kings Hill and we are delighted it has recommitted to Kent.
“We will be undertaking extensive works to refurbish the building, with them in situ, to ensure that it is energy efficient and fit for purpose for another 15 years.”
James Reader CEO of Covéa Insurance said: “We are delighted to confirm our continued support for our Kent operation. This is a significant commitment that further cements our relationships with the Kings Hill and wider Kent community, supporting our established partnerships with schools, colleges and local charities, and securing a long-term future in the region as a major employer.”
