Conwy company Cash boost from Welsh Assembly

March 2006
3X Software is set to benefit from extra money from the Welsh Assembly Government.  The business has received as Assembly Investment Grant of £30,000 to help them both modernise and expand.

Based at Oak House Abergele, the company provides skills, services and software products based around an IBM mid range. Operating in this field since 1985, services include, providing software for credit/debit machines, and for a postal address management system.

They now plan to expand by purchasing a new server, PC’s, developmental tools and office furniture – and creating two high quality jobs. This will allow the dynamic company, headed by Directors Jeff Holt and Karen Davies, to translate the software from one language to another to enable it to run on machines other than IBM – keeping both their customers and their place in the market.

Karen Davies said “The support we have received from both the Welsh Assembly and the WDA since opening our North Wales office has been tremendous. We are looking forward to continuing to develop our business with continued growth and development in North Wales”

Andrew Davies, Minister for Economic Development and Transport said: “The Welsh Assembly Government is committed to giving small businesses the support to expand.  “The Assembly Investment Grant is specifically aimed at these companies and is making a huge difference to businesses the length and breadth of Wales. Writemedia Partnership is yet another example of a small business developing expertise in a niche market and investing in the local community.

Fourteen offers of AIG, totalling £522,000 were made to projects within the Conwy Unitary Authority Area in the last financial year. This has brought in an investment of £2, 131m and created 60 jobs.
