[holding answer 16 September 2009]: Welsh business is playing a vital role in helping to deliver the venues and infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) do not have a central record of supply chain contracts and their value, but they estimate the overall spend in Wales to be in the tens of millions of pounds. Examples include:
Euroclad, based in Cardiff, supplying the rainscreen cladding for the Olympic Stadium
Rowecord, from Newport, manufacturing the steel for the roof of the Aquatics Centre
Rhino Doors, from Port Talbot, providing security doors for the Olympic Park construction site
In addition the ODA has contracted directly with Welsh companies in a series of small corporate and administrative contracts worth £5,615.
