A Welshpool web design and development company is set to battle it out with other mid Wales firms in a prestigious business competition next month.

GloverSure, specialist in building commercial websites as well as providing SMS text messaging marketing solutions will go head to head with other businesses at the Powys Business Awards.

The eight-strong team will face a beautician and a mobile hairdresser in a bid to scoop the Young Entrepreneur prize.

Candidates are challenged to demonstrate innovation, ambition and leadership, as well as a robust business plan and a marketing strategy. The winner will be announced at a black tie ceremony in Llandrindod Wells on September 28.

Richard Glover-Davies, 28, owner of GloverSure said he is excited to have been shortlisted for the Young Entrepreneur Award and hopes to have wowed judges with his company’s progress. He said his business has grown each year since he launched it from home in 2004, and now boasts over 200 customers and an array of exciting projects. The firm is now based at the Severn Business Centre in Welshpool, and customers include Powys County Council, Aberystwyth University and the NHS.

“We have a variety of commercial, public sector and charity customers, and we pride ourselves on looking after the needs of many smaller businesses and organisations within the local area and helping them to expand their businesses through an online presence,” he said.

Mr Glover-Davies said his business is virtually paper free, cutting down its carbon footprint, and charities and community groups are offered lower rates. Alongside GloverSure, Mr Glover Davies has launched ClickApe, an online retail business, as well as renting out office space at the Severn Business Centre. He is planning to build a commercial unit on site later this year.

He added: “I am proud with what has been achieved over the last six years and that we have expanded through the recession. I have a lot of ambition and have got many plans to drive the business forward over the years to come.”

The awards, which are organised by the Mid Wales Manufacturing Group, Powys County Council and Cambrian News, see dozens of businesses compete annually in a number of categories, including growth, training and start-up.
