The Window Association of New Zealand (WANZ) and Glass Association of New Zealand (GANZ) held their combined industry Awards Gala at the Crowne Plaza Auckland on 17 June.
This was a spectacular event which showcased the talent and passion in the Glass & Glazing industry. Along with BCITO they celebrated the achievement of the most promising apprentices.
