Expansion for Sudbury firm

A FAMILY-owned company based in Sudbury is set to open an office at the University of Essex campus in Colchester.

The Mackman Group, a marketing and research firm, was founded in 2003.

The company’s head office is in Station Road, and the group is now expanding to cover other areas since moving into Sudbury from Colchester four years ago.

“We’ve grown the business significantly since the move, and a good proportion of our clients are based in and around Colchester,” said company director Paul Mackman.

“We have strong links with the University of Essex and the move just made sense,” Mr Mackman added.

He said that the Mackman group’s main office, which currently employs a staff of 11 people, would continue to be in Sudbury.
