Wrightway Health

Local Occupational Health firm bought by safety specialist Marlowe PLC

Wrightway Health, a large regional occupational Health provider established in 2013 by Alison Mackway and Lindsey Wright has been acquired by Marlowe PLC for £3.5 million. The company posted profits of £0.7 million on revenues of £2.7 million in its last trading year and is at the forefront of Marlowe’s plans to become a UK leader in the Occupational Health field.

Both directors from Wrightway Health will have roles within Marlowe as they begin the process of transforming the company to a national OH provider.

Wrightway Health was taken on from Abermed by Mackway and Wright seven years ago and since then the company has gone from strength to strength developing a strong regional offering with a growing roster of local clinics across East Anglia.

“It’s been a fantastic journey for both Lindsey and I developing and growing Wrightway Health. We have a great team around us, and we see this acquisition as an exciting opportunity for all of them as well as ourselves.

Preparing for this we have worked with teams at local firms Lovewell Blake and Ashtons Legal, both of whom have been incredibly professional and hugely supportive.

Marlowe has some ambitious plans that will be exciting to be a part of moving forward.”
