Business Wales has been an extremely valuable source of support for our business. We have received advice from experts in their field on environmental and sustainability matters. We were able to purchase machinery with the Brexit Resilience Grant from Business Wales which allowed us to manufacture some components self-sufficiently in-house.
Peter Jones (ILG) Ltd, a family-owned business in Abergavenny, has been manufacturing innovative carrying solutions for security and communication equipment since 1967. Over the years, the company’s innovative designs, made from a combination of high-quality leather, robust nylon mouldings and modern synthetic materials, have helped elevate it into one of the most sought-after suppliers worldwide.
Director Morgan Jones first came to Business Wales for advice regarding developing their environmental and sustainability systems.
Since this initial contact, Morgan has worked with a range of skilled business advisers to implement their ISO 14001 environmental management system and achieve their ambition to become a more sustainable business.
They are looking to recycle their leather waste as part of their strategy to improve sustainability and have created their own Quality and Environmental Policy to showcase their responsibility to minimise the impact of their operations on the environment.
The ongoing support has enabled Morgan to secure a grant from the Brexit Resilience Fund, which enabled the business to mitigate the impact of Brexit and to safeguard jobs as well as now being able to create additional jobs.
