Haverhill was originally a Victorian manufacturing town and is the fourth largest town in Suffolk. Its proximity to Cambridge has enabled the town to attract interest from high-tech and pharmaceutical businesses in recent years. Haverhill sits just 18 miles from Cambridge, 21 miles from Stansted Airport and is the UK's bulk manufacturing base of Sanofi as well as Sigma Aldrich, Culina and International Flavours and Fragrances.
Haverhill is well and truly open for business with a number of business parks and industrial estates. The town's future business growth will be focused at Haverhill Business Park and Haverhill Research Park.
