City welcomes new businesses to the Hanlon Creek Business Park

Guelph, Ont., April 30, 2018—Local companies RKD and Zero In recently moved into their new, shared head office in the Hanlon Creek Business Park. They will be hosting their grand opening celebrations on Friday, May 11, which will include greetings from Mayor Cam Guthrie.

Both companies outgrew their previous office space in Guelph and chose to relocate to the Hanlon Creek Business Park because of its convenient access to the 401 and existing local business connections. The new office space also provides options for future expansions. The current move will include the addition of five to ten new jobs.

RKD and Zero In are examples of Guelph’s growing and thriving Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector. With Guelph’s central location in the Innovation Corridor, local ICT firms such as RKD and Zero In benefit from proximity to key customers, talent, investors, research and development, academic institutions and other regional assets.

RKD has 23 years’ experience providing custom website design, mobile application and software development. Zero In is Guelph’s only Premier Google Partner specializing in paid search, social advertising and lead generation. RKD and Zero In are committed to building long-lasting relationships and provide a professional, modern and engaging environment for employees and clients.

Join RKD and Zero In for their grand opening on Friday, May 11. Event details are available on Eventbrite.
