An educational publisher with a long history in East Anglia has started a new chapter after moving to new premises at Melton, near Woodbridge.

John Catt Publishing, which was founded 59 years ago and is based in Woodbridge, has moved to a purpose-built HQ at Riduna Park. The company, which employs 14, specialises in educational publishing, and is responsible for numerous annual school guides for parents, termly magazines for teaching leaders, and professional development titles.

Boss Alex Sharratt said: “We’ve had an incredible 12 months of staff growth, new innovations, more contracts, and some successful product developments. To cap that off, and as part of our vision for achieving some great things in the years ahead, we felt it was the perfect time to seek out a new head office.”

He added: “We’re all so excited about beginning our next chapter at the park and are looking forward to achieving more great things in the educational publishing arena.”

Katie Emerson, project manager for Riduna Holdings, said: “We’re so pleased to see the team from John Catt move in and begin this latest stage in their business journey.”
