Marketing and multi-media solutions business Bloc Digital is to expand into the US after enjoying an 80% increase in sales to Stateside customers over the last 12 months.

The Derby-based company will trade as Bloc Digital Inc. in North America, where its founders Keith Cox and Chris Hotham are soon due to embark on a trade mission. They will be welcomed by prominent US companies such as Nordson Corporation and Rolls-Royce Defence America during the visit, which has been arranged by the Chamber of Commerce in Mentor, Ohio.

Cox said: “The digital nature of our business gives us a truly global reach and has enabled us to work successfully with American clients for many years. Building on our growth and the foundations we laid prior to global covid disruptions, we are thrilled to establish Bloc Digital Inc. and be transitioning from a business with international clients into being an international business ourselves.”

Hotham added: “We’re looking forward to connecting with several high-profile companies in the US who are already impressed by our portfolio and are excited by the new opportunities and collaborations our trade mission will bring.”

Bloc, which boasts a number of clients in the engineering industry, says the trip to Ohio is especially apposite as the area “distinctly mirrors the company’s roots in the industrial-focused East Midlands.”
