Jaynic, the development company that’s creating a new employment
area at Suffolk Park in Bury St Edmunds is supporting the Bury Free
Press Business Awards at a time of great change in the region and what
better a time to celebrate business success.

Park and in the coming months we plan to seek consent for more
business space that will enable local businesses to expand. In addition,
we want to attract companies from outside the region to consider
locating in Bury St Edmunds with all its attractions.
