With so much of my time spent working to support Cambridgeshire’s businesses to grow, yesterday’s news of a new £350m contract for Marshall Aerospace was a huge boost.
Here is a link to the Cambridge News article; CEN article.
The Marshall Group is a true local success story. The company has a proud history in Cambridge dating back over 100 years, and today is a globally significant company of nearly 4,500 employees.
As a county council, it is important for us to work with companies like the Marshall Group to explore opportunities that will benefit the people of Cambridgeshire. From my experience I can say that they are a company that really care a lot about this area. For example, we have an agreement in place for the land used by our Newmarket Park & Ride site. Getting Park & Ride in place has been a big factor in the growth and development of Cambridge city centre we’ve seen in recent years.
In March last year the Council passed a motion recognising Marshall’s unique contribution to Cambridgeshire; Council motion.
