Illingworth Research Group Going For Growth

Macclesfield-based medical research company, Illingworth Research Group, continues to go from strength to strength with almost 100 per cent growth in 2019, and local MP, David Rutley, visited its premises in the town recently, to discuss future growth opportunities for the company.

Founded in 1998 by longstanding Chief Executive, John Illingworth, and currently employing well over 100 people across its sites in the UK, US, Europe and Australia in addition to over 500 research nurses in over 45 countries, the company is a market leader in providing on and off-site research nursing, patient concierge, medical photography and clinical trial solutions for much-needed and important clinical trials, often involving rare or specialised conditions. On his visit to the company's headquarters in Park Green, David was joined by Mr Illingworth and met with his senior leadership team, as well as being given a tour of the premises.

David was pleased to learn from Mr Illingworth that the company is looking to expand further into new markets, and David gave his support in working with the company to help it achieve these goals in the months ahead. David was also pleased that the company is looking to expand its apprenticeships offer throughout this year.
