BCITO is proud to sponsor the Flooring Awards in conjunction with FloorNZ.
This year, FloorNZ has again enlisted Scott Cato, a legend in the flooring industry to travel to the workplaces of all the winners to present the award to the apprentices. All award presentations included a morning/afternoon tea shout, sponsored by BCITO. This provided a great way for our award winners to celebrate with their peers, family and colleagues.
