The Flintshire Business Awards 2011 took place at Soughton Hall, Northop, on October 14, 2011.

Managing Director of AGS Security Systems (headline sponsor of this years awards), Jonathan Turner, spoke briefly at the start of the evening.

“It is wonderful to hear so many success stories in the region, and to be surrounded by so many of you whose businesses are on the up. And we can only be encouraged by the steps that Flintshire is making towards ‘Enterprise zone’ status.”

“I’m sure we all agree that in such troubled economic times in this country and around the world it is terrific to hear such an upbeat story coming out of Flintshire.”

“I hope that our sponsorship of these awards demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the Flintshire business community and our desire to give something back.”

“We have been lucky enough to receive some phenomenal support from Dave Hegarty’s Business Support Team in which Trish Carlin and Kate Katherall have been particularly hard-working and supportive.”

“On behalf of everyone at AGS Security I’d like to wish you all a fantastic night to congratulate all the prize-winners and I look forward to supporting Flintshire Business into the future.”
