Last night was a celebration for the achievements of Wolfestone over the passed 12 months, as the Swansea-based translation company was shortlisted for an award at the prestigious South Wales Business Awards, hosted at The Bear Hotel, Cowbridge.
Nominated in the category of Business Services Business of the Year, Wolfestone were shortlisted alongside some of the most influential businesses founded and operating in the South Wales region. Other businesses named in Wolfestone’s category included A&R Cleaning, Trojan Group, Mrs Bucket, Apollo Teaching and Rockall Safety.
Managing Director of Wolfestone, Alex Parr, commented: “We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for this award. We’ve actually won this award twice previously, so to be shortlisted again alongside some terrific businesses in South Wales is certainly a proud moment for Wolfestone.”
A Big Year for Wolfestone
Since the last annual South Wales Business Awards, Wolfestone has realised some terrific achievements. In December 2017, Wolfestone was able to finalise a deal in which it acquired Reading-based language service provider Robertson Languages International. In completing this deal, Wolfestone added a new service to its already diverse portfolio: language learning.
Wolfestone’s continued growth and success also led to the company sweeping up some impressive awards. In the past 12 months Wolfestone were recognised at the Best Employers in Localization Awards for “Best Language Service Provider for Career Progression”, named “Ones to Watch” at the European Business Awards, and one “Scale-Up Business of the Year” at the FSB Awards.
Ms Parr continued: “It’s been a magnificent 12 months for Wolfestone. We’ve exceeded the targets we’ve set for ourselves and that’s thanks to the wonderful and dedicated team we have working in Swansea, and our talented translators from around the world. We’re very excited to see what new opportunities the Robertson acquisition will bring and hopefully we can be back shortlisted again at next year’s South Wales Business Awards!”
Wolfestone would like to offer its congratulations to the winners of the Business Services Business of the Year, Trojan Group, and to all other business nominated at the South Wales Business Awards 2018.
