Cornish firm's Olympic contract

Cornish Concrete plant
The firm has taken on new staff

A Cornish construction company has won a contract to help build London's 2012 Olympic village.

Cornish Concrete Products, based at Bissoe, near Truro, will be involved in building turnstiles for the games.

The firm has just invested 1m in new buildings to speed up production at its plant and has recently taken on new staff.

The company was also involved in the construction of Boscastle Bridge and Ross Bridge in Penzance.

David Moses, one of the firm's directors, said: "It's not the easiest of times but we've just decided that, as a business, we would just go out there and get to our customers and be positive and not let the current economic situation get us down."
