Wall­pa­per company en­joys big night out

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE - By RHI­AN­NON McCON­NELL

Two busi­nesses stood out at the West­pac Porirua Business Ex­cel­lence Awards on Thurs­day night.

As­pir­ing Walls won the supreme award and two cat­e­gories – in­no­va­tion and trades, ser­vices and sup­pli­ers.

It was the first year the wall- pa­per man­u­fac­turer en­tered. The gen­eral man­ager, An­dreas Paxie, said he was run­ning out of speeches by the end of the night.

Rap­paw Vet­eri­nary Care also picked up three awards, in­clud­ing the young em­ployee.

The owner, Ian Schraa, was given the wrong start time and got a nice sur­prise when he ar­rived, as Jodie Ma­han was ac­cept­ing his company’s first award. Ed­i­to­rial, P 10 Story, pho­tos, P 27
