The annual Chambers of Commerce Business Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of South Wales companies to the Welsh economy. A small panel drawn from the public, private and education sectors judge all entries and short-list three finalists in each category.

Abriox was short-listed in the “Most Promising New Business” category, sponsored by Kymin Financial Services. The judges’ criteria were: the rationale behind starting the business; objectives set for the business and progress to date in achieving them; and future plans and processes in place to attain these. We were delighted to win the award, which reflects three years of hard work by the whole Abriox team to achieve a market-leading position in our target segment within the gas and petrochemical industries.

The winners of the various categories are then assessed for an overall “Outstanding Business Achievement” award, sponsored by the South Wales Argus. Abriox picked up this award as well! Gerald Davies, Managing Director of Kymin, commented: “I was delighted that you also went on to win the Winner of Winners award, which I felt endorsed mine and the other judges’ opinion of your submission”.
