They have formed a Forum to share ideas and will soon be launching their own social media accounts.

“Business Support is Available”

The Council supports the businesses there with a Business Support Officer from its Business Investment Team. This is a department that helps businesses across the county borough, and those looking to locate to Wrexham, with things such as identifying a location, setting up a business, marketing advice, establishing supply chains, marketing and research, identifying and facilitating networking opportunities, signposting to funding, supporting digital expertise, training and legislation and helping to future proof employment opportunities.

There are around 11,000 businesses in the county and all are able to access this support and guidance.

The team is based in Redwither Tower on the industrial estate and you can contact them on 01978 667300.
