Wallpaper company enjoys big night out
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
