Anchor companies

We’re working with anchor, regionally important and sector companies to understand how all our departments can work together and help build strategic relationships between government and the private sector.

An anchor company is considered as:

  • a company which is a global or international organisation
  • have Welsh head quarters or significant corporate presence in Wales.

We are also committed to building strategic relationships with key companies outside of the key sectors. These companies are of similar status to anchor companies in terms of employment, or national or regional importance.
