Our main challenges when starting the business
In starting up the business, a strong motivation (especially from one director who was born locally) was to create job opportunities in this sector as well as creating a legacy for the area. A challenge faced during the first three years was the speed of growth, initially starting up with 8 members of staff to requiring over 200 staff by 2016, with the fast growth of the business resulting in large numbers of staff not initially planned for. Working with the local government and the red tape involved was initially a challenge. However, this has reduced as the company has grown and matured and has had enormous benefits to the local economy and to the adventure industry as a whole, especially to Wales.
