A message was received from Welsh Business Minster, Edwina Hart MBE AM:

It is exciting to think that Conwy Valley Systems Ltd, one of the smallest businesses to receive this prestigious award, are now world leaders in a highly specialised niche market; and that their systems are used in 42 countries around the world.

As the world emerges from recession, Wales needs people with the vision and commitment to transform innovation into world beating products and Conwy Valley Systems have shown the way.
