Hydrogen expands into North Carolina
Hydrogen has opened its fourth office in North America: Charlotte, North Carolina.
Building on positive trading and significant expansion - with over 100% growth in the Americas region in 2018 - this move further demonstrates Hydrogen’s commitment to provide business critical staffing solutions to core STEM markets. North Carolina is ranked in the top five growth states in the US and in recent years has been named in the top three for migration. With a highly developed Life Sciences sector in state, especially in Raleigh, and a 60% growth in technology jobs over the past five years, there is a lot of opportunity here for Hydrogen to deliver strategic benefits to businesses.
Ian Temple, Hydrogen Group CEO, commented, “In 2018 we identified North America as a focus for expansion and we’re delighted to be able to announce further investment into a key part of the region. Supporting our customers drives our business and building out an East Coast operation enables us to be closer and more connected to them.
“This move builds further on a period of significant momentum for Hydrogen as a Group and combined with our Minority Interest model, which allows select individuals the ability to maximize reward and share in the Groups success we’re attracting and retaining top talent to work across our operations in North America.”
Oliver Coughlan, chief operating officer in the USA, added, “Having a presence in Charlotte (East Coast) finalizes phase one of our regional strategy, with locations also in San Diego (West Coast) and two in Texas (Central & South). As specialists in providing critical business talent to STEM markets, Charlotte felt like a natural next step for us, with opportunities in life sciences, engineering and technology industries. In fact, over 20% of our job demand is from North Carolina, so we value the opportunity to be closer to our customers, ensuring we understand key local drivers.”
