THE Bolton area is bristling with thriving businesses that you may never hear about unless they win an award or come into the public consciousness for some other reason.

One of these is Amscreen at Wingates Industrial Estate in Westhoughton which has its company headquarters at the Paragon Business Park, Horwich. It’s had a very successful 12-year history supplying state-of-the-art advertising screens and its CEO is Simon Sugar, son of Lord Alan Sugar.

It partners with Vodafone and provides an ongoing success story, boosting local industry and employing a local workforce. In fact, another proud business story for the area.
