(General Information Release January 2006)

smartlogo200MMS is pleased to announce that it has been shortlisted for the Welsh Development Agency’s “Celebration of Innovation Awards 2006” for the development of the Imhoflot G-Cell pneumatic flotation process. As one of five selected finalists MMS has been chosen as one of the most outstanding innovative companies that have previously participated in all the WDA sponsored R&D support programs over the last 12 years. The criteria for selection is “to have clearly demonstrated an improvement to their business through improved profitability, sustainability, increased employment or through collaboration and networking with other organisations”.

MMS won a SmartWales award in 2001 for the G-Cell concept. Since that time the company has taken the process to commercialisation winning several international orders for equipment based on the technology.

The winner will be announced at a gala dinner to be held in February at the Celtic Manor Resort (home of the next European-American Ryder Cup golf tournament).
