The Medac Team

The UK business has been in operation for over 20 years and despite the high level of sales turnover this is a small tight-knit team of 23 in total and so the business feels like an SME despite having a sales footprint more akin to a medium scale business. The overall Group is large-scale in terms of both turnover and people but retains a strong family and people-centric culture throughout the organisation.
