Inside Kingdom - the year that was!

Firstly may we pass our thanks to all our 2009 customers who supported the Kingdom service. Each year we have won more new customers, however the loyalty of many customers goes way back to our 1993 formation. A very, very BIG thank you to old and new and we wish you all a very Happy New Year and prosperous 2010.

2009 was a really BIG, BUSY and SUCESSFUL year for Kingdom and we hope 2010 proves to be just as good. In a difficult climate Kingdom showed its teeth and financial stability with some major wins, acquisitions and some stories to tell on the way.
