The Cowens Group was established in Mansfield in 1973 and has its offices on Commercial Gate.

Due to the growth and success of the business, the building has been modernised to cater for its ever-expanding team.

The makeover, which sees more open-place office space created, also marks the addition of two new brands to the group, Cowens Xpress Cover and Cowens Mortgage Solutions.
