Geldards was proud to be a sponsor of the Insider Made in Wales Awards that took place on the 11th October 2017 at Cardiff City Hall. The awards are a celebration of the country’s most innovative and dynamic manufacturers and those who are achieving excellence in training and apprenticeships.
Geldards Partner Rhian Brace presented the ‘Manufacturer of the Year (under £25M turnover)’ award which is awarded to a company with a turnover of less than £25M, employing fewer than 250 people and that has shown excellence and made an outstanding contribution to the sector during the year. The award was won by Frog Bikes, who manufacture lightweight bikes for children, for having increased their presence in Wales by moving production to a factory in Pontypool, creating jobs in the local economy, selecting local suppliers and shifting its storage and distribution to the country.
“Congratulations to everybody who was shortlisted, and particularly to all of the winners. The awards highlight the quality of manufacturers we have in Wales, and the training schemes on offer show that the industry will continue to thrive. Geldards are proud to be associated with the awards and look forward to seeing how the industry develops in the future.”
