Major awards for local companies

Created on 25/10/2021 @ 12:15

Two local companies have picked up major awards to recognise their response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Monty’s Brewery has been announced winner of the Insider Made in Wales Award for Food and Drink, with Trax JH, now of Newtown and formerly of Welshpool, winning the Export Award.

Great products, innovations and ideas from manufacturers of all sizes across Wales were celebrated at an awards ceremony in Cardiff for companies that have created products to help directly in the battle against Covid as well as those that have changed what they do in response to the challenges of the pandemic.

Russ Honeyman, Commercial Director of Monty’s Brewery, a Montgomery based company, received the award from Janis Richards from Made UK and TV & radio Presenter Jason Mohammad.

Russ talked about the award how important it was and appreciated by everyone at Monty’s Brewery.

He explained how difficult it had been for breweries and the hospitality sector during the pandemic and how Monty’s Brewery had adjusted and looked to the future by reducing plastic in its packaging, installing a canning line, growing their online presence, and recently introducing a non-alcoholic beer to the range.

In response to the award he said: “I’m really proud of what we have achieved, we have a great team, we have some exciting exports and projects ahead. It’s important to look forward now”.

It was also a good night for Trax JH of Newtown who picked up The Export Award, sponsored by Freight Logistic Solutions.

Trax JH makes wheel balancing weights and tyre sealants for the automotive industry at its base in Newtown. It started exporting to 18 new countries over the past year.
