Cintra buys First Edition as spur to growth

Chamber member Cintra Translations has purchased language services agency First Edition, fuelling the companies’ own growth by supporting their clients’ success here and in export markets.

Announcing Cambridge-based Cintra’s purchase of First Edition early in February, Cintra CEO Jerry Froggett, said: “Quality is in the DNA of both companies. We have in common a consistent emphasis on quality and trust that has earned both companies many loyal clients here and internationally.

“Now with First Edition on board, Cintra is exceptionally well-placed to offer a wider range of translation and interpreting services to the many diverse Suffolk businesses operating here in what is one of Europe’s fastest growing and most dynamic regions. We look forward to considerable growth in our market share.”

First Edition Translations Director, Sheila Waller, who owned and ran the company from 1997, will play a key role in realising that vision for growth. She commented: “Our shared commitment to quality and integrity is fundamental to our plans for the future.”

The companies will continue to trade as Cintra Translation and First Edition Translations respectively with no immediate plans for a change of business entity.
