David Ralph, D2N2 Chief Executive said: “D2N2 truly is the UK’s most inspirational postcode. I congratulate not only the D2N2 companies listed in this report, but all companies and organisations across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. I also commend the efforts of the wider East and West Midlands, united within the Midlands Engine, as we continue to show Government how and why this is the place to do business.”
