A COMPANY is celebrating its 10th anniversary by launching training facilities in its new premnises.

Green Duck Ltd in Western Way moved into the former Nilfisk building in October and on Friday held an Open Day to show local businesses what it has to offer and the new training facilities.

Some of these will be provided directly by Green Duck which specialises in website and ap design, IT support and strategies as well as training.

Graham Duckworth and Mathew Green began the business with one client each and over the years have grown from four or five staff members to 15. They are now advertising two more posts and an apprenticeship.

They began on the former Hardwick Industrial Estate before moving into offices in Western Way for eight years. Their new home boasts 9,000 sq ft of office space compared to 1,500. Graham said: “We will have fixed training courses which we provide and if a company wants its staff trained we have a bank of specialist trainers who are experts in their own field. We will facilitate the whole thing.”

On Friday three specialists spoke about effective marketing, the value of social media and health and safety.

Green Duck works organisations including West Suffolk College, Servest , Orbital Food and Havebury Housing Partnership.
