In recognition of the role they play in providing support, advice and guidance to businesses locally, Welsh Government Minister for Business, Enterprise, Technology & Science Edwina Hart has officially opened the new Wrexham office of Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants.
At a special gathering of Wrexham area business contacts, clients and professionals held in Redwither Tower on Wrexham Industrial Estate, the firm's new location in Wrexham, the Minister congratulated the Ellis & Co team on their continued success in the North Wales area:
"The Business and Professional sector is one of increasing prominence and importance to the economy of North Wales and I am delighted that Ellis & Co have decided to choose the Wrexham Industrial Estate as the place for the next phase of their development here."
"I believe it to be very important, especially in the present economic climate, that firms seek the right financial and professional advice and this location is positioned superbly to provide just that."
Robert Ellis, Principal, added:
" I am very pleased that the Minister and other guests have joined us in our statement of intent here in Wrexham. Having been in Wrexham for the last 6 years we believe our new location and facilities, which will shortly be enhanced by the completion of the new Expressway, present us with a great opportunity to further serve the business community here. Overall our move will help consolidate our business here in North Wales."
In addition to Edwina Hart, guests included Lesley Griffiths, Assembly Member for Wrexham and Deputy Mayor of Wrexham Gwyneth Roberts.
