Firm's Olympic contribution praised


* Ifor Williams trailers were used at London 2012.


Clwyd South Assembly Member Ken Skates has congratulated local firm Ifor Williams Trailers - where a number of Llan people work - for their pivotal role in making the London Olympics a roaring success.
The company’s trailers, which were used throughout the Olympic venues, proved to be invaluable and without them, the events simply could not have taken place.
Mr Skates said: “I want to congratulate Ifor Williams Trailers on their first rate performance at the London Olympics.

“Their products played an essential role in making the Olympics a success and the company and its staff should be justifiably proud of their hard work.
“As is so often the case, the magnificent spectacle that we see simply would not have been possible without the hard work of so many people behind the scenes.
“Ifor Williams Trailers’ dedicated team deserve a big pat on the back for their role in making the London Olympics a success.
“I’m sure everyone involved is extremely proud to be part of such a momentous occasion, and to fly the flag for Wales.”
In all, more than 150 of the company's trailers were used directly during London 2012, and 40 flatbed trailers were used to transport materials and props during Danny Boyle's spectacular opening ceremony. The firm's trailers were also used during the closing ceremony.
Ten of their employees attended the technical rehearsal at the invitation of the organising committee of the London Olympic Games the night before the opening ceremony. As well as being impressed to see so many of our trailers, they were "blown away" by the show.
