“The entries received were of an extremely high calibre.

“Despite being small in staff numbers, these firms have shown that they are already making their mark and have loyal customer bases that in some cases stretch out across the whole country. They are all good ambassadors for Powys and for Wales as a whole.


“It is wonderful to see such talented entrepreneurs emerging in Powys in so many different fields getting to the final, from food and drink to cutting-edge research and design and construction for the housing industry.

“All the very best of luck to all of the finalists. We look forward to seeing you in Newtown on Friday, October 8 and to providing the engraved trophies for all the winners in all of the categories on the night.”

Chairman Brian Jones' quote supporting business

Organisers Mid Wales Manufacturing Group launched The Powys Business Awards in 2009 but they were cancelled last year due to the Covid pandemic.

Drive-in Event

This year’s event will be very different as it will be a “Drive-in” event being held at NPTC Newtown Campus car park, with outdoor staging and screens, and takeaway food and drinks.

Each of the finalists in all categories will receive a free, professionally produced 30-second video and two complimentary tickets to the awards evening.

Ceri Stephens, Group Manager for Mid Wales Manufacturing Group, said: “The Powys Business Awards provide a fantastic platform for businesses to raise their profile. Those who enter the awards are independently judged on their excellent standards.

“The awards evening this year will be very different and we have embraced the difficulties to put on an innovative event in the region.”

This year sees a range of categories added to recognise the diverse mix of business sectors located within the County including Small Business Growth and Technology & Innovation.

Economy Minister Vaughan Gething said: “The Welsh Government is delighted to be supporting the Powys Business Awards again this year. These awards help promote the quality and diversity of businesses operating throughout Powys. Our recently published Programme for Government sets out our plans for a greener, fairer, more equal Wales over the next term, and supporting business and the economy is a cornerstone of our ambitions.”

The awards are an opportunity for all businesses, social enterprises and charities in Powys to compete for a chance tobe a winner, no matter if they are large or small or if they are a new start-up or an existing business.

In addition to the above awards, the Judging Panel have a discretionary award, called the Judges’ Award, which is made each year to recognise some outstanding achievement or person that has come to the judges’ attention during their visits.

The overall award for Powys Business of the Year 2021, sponsored by Powys County Council, will be selected from the category winners.
