Chatham, Kent – 11th February 2015 Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning developer and publisher of a range of simulation games today announced that it played host to a very special visit from none other than the British Prime Minister, David Cameron.
The visit followed the announcement of the new Help to Grow scheme, which will assist fast-growing businesses in securing financial support, enabling them to transform from small into medium-sized companies. The Prime Minister enjoyed a tour of Dovetail’s Chatham-based headquarters and was given the opportunity to see demonstrations of its current range of simulation games; Train Simulator 2015, Dovetail Games Fishing and Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition.
The Prime Minister said, “Businesses like Dovetail Games are a crucial part of our long term economic plan for the country, and it is thrilling to come and see the role they are playing in Britain’s economic recovery. Here is a business that six years ago employed eight people and now employs 98. It is growing by about a third every year and wants to stay right here in Medway and continue its expansion and success. But too many fast-growing businesses still find it hard to access finance, particularly those wanting to take that next step to becoming a medium-sized business. That’s why today I’m announcing that the British Business Bank will start a pilot scheme at the Budget with at least £100million of new lending and help us grow our businesses and create jobs.”
“It was a huge honour to welcome the Prime Minister to our office,” said Paul Jackson, CEO of Dovetail Games. “Dovetail’s team has grown more than tenfold since we opened our doors in 2009, and is precisely the kind of organisation which will be able to benefit from the new scheme, so we can continue to expand and contribute to the regeneration of the Medway towns.”
