Porirua business is boom­ing – that was the mes­sage that came out of the West­pac Porirua Business Ex­cel­lence Awards at Te Rau­paraha Arena on Thurs­day night.

As­pir­ing Walls took out the supreme award in its first year com­pet­ing.

Cham­ber of Com­merce chief ex­ec­u­tive, Holly Thomp­son, said the judges were im­pressed by the abil­ity of the 54-year-old business to change with the times. She said the supreme award fo­cused on a business with a lot of suc­cess in the past 12 months. It was not based on how many other awards were won by the business dur­ing the evening, which drew nearly 240 peo­ple, she said.
