Wales' 300 companies.

I recommend people buy the Western Mail today. Aside from the usual business section there is the glossy annual 'Top 300' businesses supplements, with lots of data and analysis on each.

Looking Cardiff specific, it provides more evidence of the importance of Cardiff to the Welsh economy, as 71 (2 in Penarth) of the 300 companies are Cardiff based, representing 24% of the total.

Biggest company based in Wales is Iceland (Deeside) and Admiral comes in at number 2. It says Admirals employee numbers have risen from 4,252 to 5,324.

Interesting to note, that the threshold for inclusion (ie, the turnover of th 300th biggest company) is now £19m, the highest ever and up from £16.38m in 2010.

Generally speaking good news, and well worth a read.
