A NORTH Wales business has been recognised at a major awards.
Mark Williams has been recognised as one of this year’s most exceptional business leaders at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2022 grand final.
Mr Williams, the founder of Bylchau-based LIMB-art Ltd, won small business entrepreneur of the year.
LIMB-art is a British design and manufacturing company dedicated to producing cool prosthetic leg covers.
Founded in 2018 by former Paralympic swimmer and medalist, Mark Williams and his wife Rachael, LIMB-art was born out of an overwhelming desire to help other prosthetic users raise their confidence, be proud of what they have and very simply, but equally importantly have fun showing off whilst doing so!

The programme, in partnership with Starling Bank, has recognised the UK’s most inspiring entrepreneurial success stories for a decade and developed a community-oriented network of alumni which grows year on year.
The ceremony was held at Grosvenor House in London and saw 1,400 entrepreneurs and colleagues join together to celebrate a collective £2 billion generated in turnover and over 17,000 jobs.
Mark Williams is among 12 Welsh entrepreneurs who went home with prizes in categories from health and beauty and sustainability, to family business and the overall Great British entrepreneur of the year award, which was won by Jordan Brompton of myenergi Ltd
Mr Williams said: “It’s truly amazing to pick up this award from initially an idea just to solve my own body image issues with my prosthetic to now having these covers available through the NHS in the UK and as far afield as Queensland, Australia.”
