During these challenging economic times, Gwynedd Council is determined to doing as much as possible to support the county’s businesses.
As part of this work, the Council’s Business Support Services’ Assets Team are working hard to help home-grown companies to expand by offering industrial space for them in locations all over Gwynedd.
Gwynedd Council’s team is responsible for 86 industrial units across the county, a number of land plots as well as three enterprise centres - Intec and Mentec in Bangor and Glanypwll in Blaenau Ffestiniog. The officers also work closely with businesses to ensure the facilities meet their needs and they also work to encourage businesses to set up in Gwynedd.
Gwynedd Council Leader, Councillor Dyfed Edwards said: “It’s great to see that the Council can help businesses to expand in Gwynedd as well as encouraging new firms to set-up in the county.
“We are very aware of the importance Gwynedd’s businesses make to communities all over the county, and that’s why as a Council we are committed to giving as much support as possible to our companies so they can thrive here in Gwynedd.”
The team has recently supported a number of businesses in Gwynedd to expand by offering them space at one of the Council’s industrial units. One of these businesses is Cornhill Environmental which helps companies to recycle electrical equipment. The company have been tenants to the Council since 2007, and after winning a number of new contracts they worked closely with the Council to find suitable space. They now work from two Council-owned units on Tanycastell Industrial Estate in Harlech.
Another company which has recently expanded is Liquids Research who have been Council tenants at Mentec in Bangor since 1992. The company which produces specialist materials for the semiconductor industry secured an extra unit in 2000 and the Council is now working with them as they want to expand even further after winning a large contract with a luxury car manufactures from Germany.
Gwynedd Council has also supported a number of new tenants over recent months, including Site Walker Services. The company’s director contacted the Council, looking to re-locate to the county. The company which repairs, sells and maintains water pumps was successful in their application for a unit on the Pantdreiniog Industrial Estate in Bethesda.
