The Welsh Government programme offering individual support to SMEs with growth potential reached this milestone as Tiago Szabo, a factory operator for Wrexham based automotive design and manufacture company Hi-Mark, began work at the company’s 25,000 sq. ft site.

The story has received widespread press attention, from media outlets including Business Matters, Business Mole and Markets Insider.

Economy Minister Ken Skates was at Hi-Mark’s factory to witness their growth and to meet Tiago. He said:

“The Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme has been a real flag bearer for Business Wales and it’s fantastic to see that it’s now been directly responsible for some of our most ambitious and high potential SMEs creating 5000 new jobs across Wales.

“I would encourage businesses in Wales with strong ambitions to grow and expand to explore whether the Accelerated Growth Programme can help them too.”
