Wales's economy is more reliant on the manufacturing sector than other nations and regions. The industry provides one in three Welsh jobs, so it's important for Wales's manufacturers to be on the right track.
Corgi Hosiery has been making socks in Ammanford for 120 years and in recent years it's had to reshape its business to be fit for the challenges it faces in the modern world.
The business started with work socks for local colliers, but now it's a luxury brand producing hand-knitted wool, cotton and cashmere socks and knitwear, stocked in some of the UK's most prestigious stores.
The company is run by brother and sister team Chris Jones and Lisa Wood, who are the great-great-grandchildren of the company's founder.
Lisa, who is also design director, says business is looking good and they've been working with designer brands including Burberry and Fred Perry.
The business employs around 50 people, most of whom work on the shop floor. It's part of the recent Welsh export success story, with strong demand in America, Japan and China.
The company draws on more than a century of tradition and for those who are working there the future is looking very bright.
